These things I know too well, to entertain the vain hope of any individual succeeding in opposition. But although I foresee the consequences, yet I think it a point of duty to give this public testimony of my dislike of the Order. - Aedanus Burke
WHO WERE THESE MEN AND WOMEN who were willing and ready to see a veterans' organization as an insidious plot to subvert the American Republic? Unlike the Cincinnati themselves, the critics did not have an organization, however informal; they left no membership rosters or meeting notes. Most penned their attacks under pseudonyms or without any name at all; Burke's willingness to reveal his identity as Cassius was the exception, not the norm. Corresponding among one another, the critics were less secretive, but only the wealthy and well-educated left substantial private papers. Probably, many anti-Cincinnati sources were lost over time, leaving too little material to allow a comprehensive political and sociological analysis. These things I know too well, to entertain the vain hope of any individual succeeding in opposition. But although I foresee the consequences, yet I think it a point of duty to give this public testimony of my dislike of the Order. - Aedanus Burke
