Североамериканские связи Франсиско де Миранды (продолжение)

Based on rich and diverse sources, including the U.S. archives, the article researches the place of the United States of America in life and revolutionary projects of the Precursor of the Spanish American independence Francisco de Miranda (1750-1816). It is argued that the circle of Miranda's friends and supporters in the United States was Federalist in spirit - contrary to a widely held notion that foreign revolutions drew support from the Jeffersonian National Republican milieu. The article analyses the 1797/1799 plan of the Anglo-American union against France and Spain in the name of the Spanish American independence and the annexation of Louisiana and Florida by the United States. This plan was elaborated by Miranda and supported by Alexander Hamilton. The precise date of one of Miranda's constitutional projects is clarified (1797, not 1798). For the first time in world historiography the article reconstructs the New York draft of soldiers for the Miranda's Venezuela expedition of 1806. The history of this expedition is also reconstructed in details.
