American Series of Famous Fiction

Excerpt from American Series of Famous Fiction: The Gunmaker of Moscow The time at which we open our story is mid-winter and towards the close of the seventeenth century. Russia had passed through the long and bitter ordeal of national Night. The Tartar yoke had been worn till the very bones of the nation were galled; and when this was thrown off civil dissensions and insurrections commenced. The Poles and Swedes plundered the country, and amid general tumult and confusion some half dozen men were clamoring for the throne. At length a few patriotic citizens, pledging everything they held dear on earth to the cause of freedom from this curse of anarchy, and headed by a noble prince and an humble, patriotic butcher, made a bold stand to save the country. Moscow was retaken, and Michael Romanoff was chosen Czar; and this illustrious family still occupies the imperial throne. And now the day of Russian greatness dawned; but the sun was not fairly up - the broad light opened not upon the empire - until Peter came to the throne.
