The Most Embarrassing Part

The most embarrassing part of yesterday afternoon is that I was trying to make the point that Demonbreun was incredibly important for Nashville’s well-being because he was a diplomat of sorts, a man Washington had to at least humor if he showed up with complaints or concerns. The advantage Nashville had over all over frontier villages is that they had a skilled political operative with international ties whose clout they could employ when needed.

On and on I went about Washington. Only at the end was I like, “Well, obviously, not Washington. Philadelphia.”

My one good point! Ruined by my failure as a history nerd.

  1. If you caught it yourself, then it’s much less embarrassing. And, I bet when you did point out your mistake, others hadn’t yet clued in either.
