American Founders are applicable also to this volume on American Leaders. The lecture on Daniel Webster has been taken from its original position in Warriors and Statesmen (a volume the lectures of which are now distributed for the new edition in more appropriate groupings), and finds its natural neighborhood in this volume with the paper on Clay and Calhoun. Since the intense era of the Civil War has passed away, and Northerners and Southerners are becoming more and more able to take dispassionate views of the controversies of that time, finding honorable reasons for the differences of opinion and of resultant conduct on both sides, it has been thought well to include among American Leaders a man who stands before all Americans as the chief embodiment of the cause for which so many gallant soldiers died Robert E. Lee. His personal character was so lofty, his military genius so eminent, that North and South alike looked up to him while living and mourned him dad.
