Transcript of a lecture on the cause, course and results of the American Rev. War by Lord Acton given circa 1900.

FTA: "Lord Acton (John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton, 1834-1902) was a leading 19th-century historian in the classical-liberal tradition. He watched the growth of the United States with great interest, and lamented the decline of states' rights and federalism. While he was a prolific writer and speaker, his great work, a history of freedom, was never completed."
