Southern Statesmen of the Old Regime : Washington, Jefferson, Randolph, Calhoun, Stephens, Toombs, and Jefferson Davis (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Southern Statesmen of the Old Regime: Washington, Jefferson, Randolph, Calhoun, Stephens, Toombs, and Jefferson Davis I have now sufficiently explained the occasion for the writing and the publication of these lec tures, and I have tried to characterize the spirit in which I composed them. One other matter needs explanation, to wit, the choice I have made of the statesmen discussed. Many of the most distinguished Southern political leaders have no special treatment, and some are hardly mentioned by name. It was, indeed, my original intention to make the volume more truly representative by including lectures, or rather chapters, on Madison, Monroe, Marshall, and Yan cey; but other work has intervened, and I have been compelled to publish only the original lec tures as they were delivered in Madison.
