    Ever since I read Sheldon Richman’s 2 part article series on the War of 1812, I decided to pick up Gordon S Wood’s <i>Empire of Liberty</i>.

    I do enjoy the historical details, and it i revisionist in certain ways, including its descriptions of the debate between Federalists and Jeffersonian Democrats.

    What does Wood get right and what does he get wrong?


    Please be more specific.
