Buchanan has been painted all lhwk
in the opening scene of the Civil war,
loaded down with all the weaknesses

one can see now, wit I the ad of hind

done, but not what he could have done.
The North itself, In the bewildering
winter of 1860-61 was far from
agreed that secession cotild or should
be stopped by force. "Let the Union
slide," the abolitionists said. "Let the
erring brethren go," saId llorace G#ree

peace," General Scott would have said
to the secedini states.

Edwin M. Stanton of OhIo, although
