The book opens on Oct. 26, with Lord George III making a parade in his great 4-ton mentor pulled by eight Hanoverian cream ponies. He had planned the symbolic vehicle himself with three overlaid cherubim, one of each speaking to Britain, Scotland, and Ireland, in spite of the reality he had never been outside of Britain. The virtue of prudence suffuses the writings of Edmund Burke and Abraham Lincoln, yet the demands of statecraft compelled both to take daring positions against long odds: Burke against the seemingly inexorable march of the French Revolution, Lincoln against disunion at a moment when the Northern situation appeared untenable/5.
Whigs opposed what they viewed as the tyrannical rule of Andrew Jackson. For this reason, they named themselves after the eighteenth-century British-American Whigs, who stood in opposition to King George. Whigs believed in an active federal government committed to internal improvements, including the establishment of a national bank. The Whigs claimed to be defenders of the common man and declared the Democrats the party of corruption. They supported the natural harmony of society and the value of community. They favored a renewed national bank, protective tariffs, internal improvements, public schools, and moral reforms, such as the prohibition of liquor and the abolition.

A wonderful book by probably the best writer on American Revolutionary history in America today.5/5(5).
