Bowker Data Service Summary
Michel-Ange-Bernard Mangourit, as French consul to Georgia and the Carolinas, was dispatched in 1792 to capitalise on the fledgling alliance between the young republics as a means to spread the French Revolution into Spanish holdings in the Floridas and Louisiana. This is a case study of the challenge given to US republicanism.
