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 DAB ; The Works of William E. Channing, Boston, 1847, 1:69–166.
