Bill Kauffman fans ...

... may find this interesting: A Little History for the Hyperventilating (Via InstaPundit.)

Clement L. Vallandingham receives high praise from Kauffman in Look Homeward, America, though I don't believe these remarks of his are quoted: "I see more barbarism and sin, a thousand times, in the continuance of war ... and the enslavement of the White race by debt and taxes and arbitrary power" than in Negro slavery. "In considering terms of settlement we [should] look only to the welfare, peace, and safety of the white race, without reference to the effect that settlement may have on the African." A fellow every bit as noble as Millard Fillmore.
