Wondering if the second act has closed...

"There is nothing more common," he began, "then to confound the terms of the American revolution with those of the late American war.  The American war is over: but this is far from being the case with the American revolution.  On the contrary, nothing but the first act of the great drama is closed.  It remains yet to establish and perfect our new forms of government; and to prepare the principles, morals, and manners of our citizens, for these forms of government."
