William Cullen Bryant reference

I am a huge fan of William Cullen Bryant...not his poetry,so much, which I find hard to follow, but the fact that he is very distantly related to me & it is fairly easy to find mentions of him in various forms of media...
you can usually find him in an Abraham Lincoln biography, but this one was in "1,001 Things Everyone Should Know About American History" by John A. Garraty page 147 #807

"The Embargo" (1808) by William Cullen Bryant, an intemperate attack on Thomas Jeffersnon ("Go, wretch, resign the presidential chair"), composed to his later embarrassment, when Bryant was 14.
