Not Seward's Folly


I should preface my remarks today by making it clear that this is not a book review, but a reflection on a book review. The book, Seward:  Lincoln's Indispensable Man by Walter Stahr (Simon and Schuster, 2012) is not the subject of this blog, just as they say in therapeutic terms, “the presenting issue.” My subject is actually the particular angle that one reviewer has taken on the life of William Henry Seward.
