Description A small book [60 cm.] published first by Willis Bruce Dowd in 1904 and later by Marcus Schnitzer in 1916. In this edition, Schnitzer describes Vance, the person, and attempts to interpret his reasons for the "Scattered Nation," speech. He also details the funeral of Vance held in Washington, DC, an event "attended by the President and members of the Cabinet, diplomats, members of Congress, and officers of the Army and Navy." Schnitzer describes Vance's most important contribution as his legislation and "the literature that make(s) for the progress of the humanities."
