Summary This text examines the manoeuvres through which US partisans encoded the turmoil of antebellum America in terms of English affiliation. Demonstrating that English genealogies, geographies, and economics encoded the sectional crisis for southern and northern Americans, it locates sectionalism in a broader Atlantic context of cultural imagination and literary production
