Political History of Secession to the Beginning of the American Civil War (Classic Reprint)

Preface much space to one and too little to another. Therefore, while endeavoring to avoid prolixity, I have also tried to avoid sacrificing accuracy to brevity, believing that any event of sufficient historical importance to merit reference should be stated fully enough to make its importance understood. For example, I have devoted much more space to the history of the Dred Scott case than is given to it by most historians, because it is impossible for any historian to convey in two or three pages a correct understanding of this important and far-reaching case. Tastes vary as to the best method of presenting history. I have little to say about my own. While never losing sight of the necessity of accuracy in recording historical facts, I have endeavored to state them in such a way as not to repel the general reader by giving the book the appearance of one designed only for schools of the Gradgrind kind where facts and nothing but facts are taught hard, dry facts without a touch of coloring that art, poetry, humor, or fancy might lend to make the story of them attractive. As I write from the standpoint of one who is a descendant of old Massachusetts Puritan stock and who served in the Civil War as a soldier of the Union A rmy, it is not to be expected that my opinions will receive the assent of those who view the subject from a Southern standpoint. On the other hand, it is probable that some of my opinions of men and events will not receive the assent of all Northern readers. In consequence of new historical facts that are every day coming to light, few men in either the North or the South now entertain the same opinions of men prominent in and of events significant to the history of secession that they entertained in earlier years. It is not yet possible, however, for Northern and Southern writers to agree in their conclusions. They will, therefore, continue(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
