Beginning with a study of the frontier mind, Davenport traces the cultural development of the city in the rise of schools, colleges, churches, and medical science; he gives special attention to the amusements of the day--drama, opera, concerts, and minstrels; finally he examines the newspapers and magazines of the period, the poets and would-be poets, and the architects and their creations.
