This chapter focuses on William Dodd's travel to Europe on June 7, 1897, especially his time in Leipzig, Germany. It looks at Dodd's activities in Leipzig, from taking German lessons and attending the lectures of the prominent historians Karl Lamprecht and Erich Marcks. It also considers Dodd's confidence that he would earn his Ph.D and how his closest American acquaintances in Leipzig, Vernon L. Kellogg and Elliott H. Goodwin, put his ideas about Jefferson Davis's democracy to the test.
