in consequence of the missive, Well, she did..., penned by MarianneR
I have just gone back through what I had written and there were at least thirty unsupported assertions (So much easier to say things than to support them, especially in the wee small hours - I think I will make it a rule never to post anything after midnight).
Also, there was a lot more to the establishment of the US Navy and the causes of the War of 1812 than I have mentioned (the French were really not very helpful, for example)...but this is about Persuasion and the uses of Navy lists, so I thought it would be better to steer clear of the Emperor of Elba and any real, solid history, in the hope that Mr Roosevelts book would be a good enough source.
A lot of what I claimed could be as easily disputed as supported, but I'm pretty sure I can get all the sources of the claims I made.
