 "But aren't we talking about a bias that goes a bit overboard?"

Hate to be complicating this thread further, as this thread is complicated and the "author bias" thing seems  more of a separate subject, but it only took me a split second to spit out McPherson's name in answer to your "name one" question - as the man is both an icon when it comes to CW history, and has a bias that I consder more than a bit overboard.  That is, if you are looking at him as a CW historian, which most people do.  As a socialogist specializing in the later half of the 1800's, perhaps not.....but then again, perhaps.

Anyway, coming down with bronchocitis I think, I can never adjust to these Michigan winters, and will be taking tomorrow off, so will steep myself in chamomile tea and my defense then.

Will fix my bayonet at sunrise, or whenever I feel like rolling out of my blanket.

Great thread, Y'All!!!!!!!)(90)(90)(90)(90
