This report is the paper read by Hewitt before the American Geographical and Statistical Society, on February 21, 1856 at New York University. Hewitt provides a history of the role played by iron mining and production in the rise of major powers, the role of iron in helping a nation win a war, the production of iron in America over the past 100 years and how iron will continue to play a major role in America in the future. The report is quite rare.
