Excerpt from History of Europe, Vol. 1: From the Fall of Napoleon in MDCCCXV to the Accession of Louis Napoleon in MDCCCLII During a period of peace the eras of history cannot be so clearly perceived on a first and superficial glance as when they are marked by the decisive events of war; but they are not, on that account, the less obvious when their respective limits have been once ascertained. The triumphs of parties in the senate-house or the forum are not, in general, followed by the same immediate and decisive results as those of armies in the field; and their consequences are often not fully developed for several years after they have taken place. But they are equally real and decisive. The results do not follow with less certainty from the movements which have preceded them. It is in tracing these results, and connecting them with the changes in legislation or opinion in which they originated, that the great interest and utility of the history of pacific periods consists. The periods which have passed over during the thirty-seven years of European national peace - from the Fall of Napoleon in 1815, to the Accession of Louis Napoleon in 1852 - are not so vividly marked as those which occurred during the wars of the French Revolution, but they have a distinctness of their own, and the changes in which they terminated were not less eventful.
