Abstract
The War of Independence of Latin America became a serious challenge both for U.S. foreign policy and public opinion. North Americans judged the revolutionary events either by the rigid ideology of Enlightenment, classical republicanism and nascent liberalism or by the older "black legend" prejudice. The article shows the evolution of the North American attitude towards its "Southern brethren": the growing interest in 1815–1822, the peak of enthusiasm in 1822–1826 and the deep disillusionment after the Panama Congress in 1826. For U.S. public mind the Latin American revolutionary experience contributed to the XIX century victory of republican isolationism over active messianism.
