Stephen Knapp[edit]

This page links to the wrong Knapp... his name is Steven, not Stephen. And the link takes one to a completely different person. Evidence of error: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/hfs.cgi/00/1547.ctl

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. was a "conservative" historian? [Not according to Michaels]
