An even higher duty is to rescue from neglect and oblivion the record of unknown or forgotten patriots. It is a duty which this Connecticut Society of the Order has fulfilled, by the graceful pen of its Governor, with distinguished fidelity and success. A duty still more imperative sometimes emerges - that of defending the memory of the fathers from systematic defamation and detraction. Sectarian animosity, partisan rancor, and even the ignoble ambition to extol the memory of some favorite by disparaging worthier names, have again and again incited to the shameful business of covering some of the fairest pages of American history with ugly and malicious blots. It is this third task, that of defending the Founders and Patriots from defamation, which I have prescribed to myself to-day. There is no point on which our Founders and Patriots have been more studiously traduced than in the misrepresentation, or the non-representation, of their record concerning slavery. That record is eminently noble and honorable. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
