AHA member E. M. Rose has recently published an opinion piece, “History Shows the Overblown Value of Political Image” in the Virginian-Pilot. Rose discusses how the history of the first governor of Virginia, Lord Delaware, might indicate how political image can override reality, and asserts that “the lessons of Lord Delaware are more relevant than ever today. They suggest that a firm hand is important only in an immediate crisis. For long term institutional support, capitalist enterprise and the democratic debate it enables produce lasting results.”
