ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

We should like to express our deepest gratitude to Richard Gilder and Lewis Lehrman, who not only made this book possible but also whose immense generosity and ongoing collecting project has already done much to increase the American public's knowledge and understanding of our complex past. We also wish to thank James G. Basker, president of the Gilder Education Group, and Seth T. Kaller, the main liaison of Mr. Gilder and Mr. Lehrman to various manuscript owners. Paul W. Romaine, the curator and executive director of the collection, and Sandra M. Trenholm, his archives and reference specialist, both provided us with innumerable photocopies and much invaluable information. Lesley S. Herrmann, executive director of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, first suggested the creation of such an anthology, and has provided us with much encouragement and support. We are also grateful to S. Parker Gilbert, president of the Morgan Library Board of Trustees, Charles E. Pierce, Jr., director of the library, and such curators as Robert Parks, Christine Nelson, and Lori E. Gilbert, who have helped us and other researchers make use of the collection. David Brion Davis would like to thank Michael Kammen, John Stauffer, Bertram Wyatt- Brown, Adam J. Davis, Thomas LeBien, and Paul Romaine for valuable criticism and suggestions regarding the Introduction. Many of the documents, it should be stressed, are available on microfilm or on the Internet. Inquiries about Gilder Lehrman Collection holdings may be addressed to Ms. Leslie Fields, Assistant Curator, The Pierpont Morgan Library, 29 East 36th Street, New York, NY 10016.

For invaluable help translating, transcribing, and interpreting documents, Steven Mintz would like to thank Kenneth Lipartito, Catherine Patterson, and especially Susan Kellogg. He is also very grateful to Paul Romaine and Sandra Trenholm for their helpful advice, detailed comments, and indispensable help in selecting illustrations.
