Abstract
The author addresses the need to develop Atlantic studies in US history studies. In the center of his analysis are two monuments to American liberty in Greystoke Castle (modern Cumbria) and Parlington Hall (West Riding, Yorkshire). They were erected after the Paris peace treaty by Charles Howard, 11th Duke of Norfolk, and Thomas Gascoigne – Rockingham Whigs with Catholic background. Their political stance and peculiar Whiggish patriotism challenges common views about the pro-American movement in Great Britain which is often described as largely urban, merchant and artisan, radical, often connected to dissenters, and ceasing with the advent of open hostilities and the Franco-American alliance of 1778.
