Overview

North America, 1837-1914 records an era of territorial ambition and international disputes, of bloody and protracted civil war, and of reconstruction and rapid modernization. These years witnessed America's rise as a world power, giving Great Britain good reasons to watch her former colony closely. Britain's territorial claims in North America, her political and economic interests in the future of a divided republic, the need for allies as she braced for world war, and other concerns ensured careful and thorough reporting by the British of events on the North American continent.
