THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION: A LECTURE, DELIVERED BEFORE THE DUBLIN YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION IN CONNECTION WITH THE UNITED CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND IRELAND, OCTOBER 30TH, 1862.

New York: T.J. Crowen, Publisher and Bookseller, 1862. 15, [1] pp. Disbound, loosening, clean text. Good+.

Published also in Dublin, the Lecture rebuts the view, evidently prevalent in Ireland and England, that "it was the North which was the aggressive party, as if the North had been pursuing towards the Southern people a career of encroachment and oppression which reached its climax in Mr. Lincoln's election...Now the facts of the case are precisely the reverse of all this. It is not the North but the South which virtually for the last half century has been the dominant influence in the nation. Southern men, and the nominees of Southern men, have filled the Presidential chair... and guided the policy of the nation."
