When reading the Oct. 10 feature on Aaron Burr Jr. 1772, I recalled that Woodrow Wilson 1879 in his multi-volume American history of the early 1900s noted at the time of the Mexican War that Burr’s ideas of decades earlier were not the accepted position. I thought Wilson was expressing approval and saw it as an expression of Princeton pride.
