"Were nations to review in peace their motives for having made war,
with the means they employed,and the method...they would in general find much to blame in a moral as well as military view...they would become better men and soldiers...but as nations cannot be brought together;it rests with governments to perform this self-examination,when, if they omit it, devolves on the historian."
Mabby, from Notices of the War of 1812 by John Armstrong.
