Description

We may as well acknowledge that only the few read history as a recreation. To the world at large, the picture of the Past will always be dim, save as illumined by the masters of romance. Their presentation is often false in portraiture, incident, perspective — facts being more or less distorted to suit the whim of the artist; but, although lacking in accuracy, their tableaux are popularly accepted as true, and so vividly painted are they that historians seek in vain to correct them.
