Here, for the first time, is the story of how America's first national resort gave birth to, then nurtured, its first national sport, introducing the country to a parade of champions and their spectacular supporting characters. To experience this adventure is to see why the Saratoga Race Course, America's oldest major sports facility remains one of its most beloved and most successful. They're Off! is as much a social history as it is sports history. Edward Hotaling opens with a little-known visit by the first famous tourist, George Washington, who tried to buy the place he called "the Saratoga Springs". Soon the pursuit of happiness at our original vacationland helped redefine America. Even at the height of the Civil War, the country's first organized sport was launched on a national scale.

Published in 1951, this biography of George Foster Peabody (1852-1938) tells the story of an industry pioneer, railroad magnate, and philanthropist. A native of Georgia, Peabody is often listed alongside such men as John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and J. P. Morgan--men who rose from obscurity to prominence after Reconstruction. Peabody's businesses were central to the building of railroads in the United States and Mexico, and to financing mining, electrical, and sugar beet industries. Peabody also took a prominent role in civic affairs, using his position of power as an active philanthropist. Peabody's greatest concern was the advancement of education, and he eventually retired from his many business interests to devote himself to humanitarian work. Today, Peabody may be recognized most widely as the person after whom the George Foster Peabody Awards--which recognize distinguished achievement and meritorious service in the electronic media--are named.
