Bravo! Finally an example of American scholarship worthy of the assignation. Dr. Burnett's grasp of the nuanced angst of Forsyth as a Southern Unionist is incisive. This is a splendid read and proof of the thesis implied by the title of this treatment; the pen, in the hand of one as discerning as Dr. Burnett, does indeed make a good sword.
