ABBOTT, John Stephens Cabot, author, born in Brunswick, Maine, 18 September, 1805; died in Fair Haven, Connecticut, 17 June, 1877. He was a brother of Jacob Abbott, and was graduated at Bowdoin College in 1825, and at Andover Theological Seminary. He was ordained as a Congregational minister in 1830, and successively held pastorates at Worcester, Roxbury, and Nantucket, Massachusetts. Like his elder brother, he had the narrative faculty in a remarkable degree, and, like him, he was a prolific writer. His first published work, "The Mother at Home" (1833), commanded a large sale, and was followed by "The Child at Home," and at short intervals by other books of a semi-religious character. In 1844 he resigned his pastorate and devoted himself to literature, his favorite field of work being professedly historical. His principal books are "Practical Christianity"; "Kings and Queens, or Life in the Palace"; "The French Revolution of 1789" ; "The History of Napoleon Bonaparte" (2 vols.); "Napoleon at St. Helena "; " The History of Napoleon III." (1868); 10 volumes of illustrated histories; "A History of the Civil War in America" (2 vols., 1863-1866); "Romance of Spanish History" (1870); and "The History of Frederick the Second, called Frederick the Great" (1871). Several of these have been translated into foreign languages.
