Finished with Roger and Saville

Finally put all the raw material in place for the Commune segment.  Got Roger and Saville married up and out of the city.

Started on the summary section.  Hmm.  This could be more difficult than I thought.  I'm pretty set on it being 100 pages (~50,000 words)  At 3000 words a day, though, that won't take long.

Themes:  Nationalism, technological change, colonization, international relations, and cultural changes.  How 1870 sprang from and affected the past and the future is the overarching analysis.  Was it really a turning point?  How so?  Evidence?  Argument?  Judgment.
