  zanzibar: No mention of the Ware--Grundy controversy?! Hmmm...

Actually, there's not been any commentary whatsoever about this tournament. Let's kick off with this quote from Soltis' <Chess Lists> p61

~<The 5th American Chess, held in NY in 1880, was a weak tournament and produced both a poor tournament book and an atrocious series of games. It is forgotten except for an incident in the final round...>

Soltis, master of understatement.

Actually, this incident is a little infamous, but not isolated. In the interest of fair play, Soltis also comments on Anderssen--Szen from <London (1851)>, a story I was unfamiliar with, plus a few others.
