Karen Markey was a columnist for the Burgoyne Tribune during the middle years of the twentieth century. Sobel quotes her column from the 12 September 1949 issue of the Tribune in which she writes, "North American republicanism was strengthened by the Global War, which showed, among other things, that a republic need not forget its heritage while under attack. Hogg never forgot this; Silva did. It is the difference between a nation that honors John Dickinson and one that honors Andrew Jackson."
Markey's failure to note that the C.N.A. remained neutral throughout the war, and thus was not under attack, suggests that her desire to praise Hogg and the C.N.A. was motivated more by partisanship and nationalism than by an abstract admiration for republican institutions.
