"As fresh data appear, mistakes will be found and later writers will make new interpretations. It is the fate of all historians, especially those who take the risk of writing shortly after the event, to be superseded, Far safer to write about an era long past, in which all the actors are long since dead!"
— Samuel Elliot Morison
