Mystoneycreek, your argument really makes no sense. In fact, it isn't an argument at all. You accuse me of ignoring context and yet you provide none. You accuse me of revisionism but provide no details. You're throwing around a lot of vitriol, but little else.

The term "revisionism", in my experience, is one which is used nearly exclusively by those who seek to protect their treasured historical mythologies from nasty things like "facts" and "evidence". The decisions made at the time may have been the result of "context", but so is every other decision, good or bad, made today. These decisions were not made by "Hamilton" - only those in charge - like today they were made by small groups of people, and many were opposed.

Learn from the past or be doomed to repeat it. Isn't that the point of studying history?
