1. William Ellery Channing (1780–1842) was the influential Unitarian minister of the Federal Street Church in Boston. His “Remarks on the Life and Character of Napoleon Bonaparte,” which appeared in two parts in the Christian Examiner
for 1827–1828, was intended “to destroy the romantic glamor that invests the successful warrior.” See
; The Works of William E. Channing
, Boston, 1847, 1:69–166.
