This chapter pays particular attention to the ways in which early nineteenth-century North Americans imagined the possibilities of life in Texas and debated the revolutionary impact of liberalism in the Cherokee Nation. Drawing on studies in Texas social history, Native American history, and Spanish frontier history, it describes southern planters, Connecticut Congregationalists, Cherokees, and Mexicans all participating in a common political world and reacting to common political trends.

Keywords:   North Americans, Texas, liberalism, Cherokee Nation, Native American, Connecticut Congregationalists, Cherokees, Mexicans, political trends
