  • I'll review this, soon. Seattle (talk) 00:59, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
  • No DAB links, no dead links.
  • He wrote a number of history books that are still considered reliable today. Considered reliable by who? And the MOS discourages the use of "today".
    • I've tempered this statement. Magic♪piano 15:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
  • second of those years he was chairman of the judiciary committee. Can you link "judiciary committee" somewhere?
    • I would if there was a suitable article to link to, but there is none on the state senate committee, and none on such committees generally. The alternative, linking to dab page Judiciary Committee, doesn't IMHO add value. Magic♪piano 15:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
  • court of common pleas Needs capitalization. Done Magic♪piano 15:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Washburn was popular and dedicated teacher. Reference? And an "a" is missing.
    • Cited to Warren at end of next sentence (Warren is admittedly quoting Washburn's grandson).link to p. 314 (Added "a".) Magic♪piano 15:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Files check out in terms of copyright.
  • Copyright and accuracy spotchecks on references 8 and 17 checks out, but reference 17 I found to be on page 136 [1]. I'm satisfied that this article meets GA criteria once these issues are addressed. Seattle (talk) 14:06, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
    • I've changed ref 17. (I'm wondering if it might be a difference between editions, but it's not a big deal.) Thank you for taking the time to review this! Magic♪piano 15:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
