In this essay, written twenty-six years before the American Civil War, Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville, famous for his work on American life and affairs as viewed by a foreigner, analyzes what is meant by a republican government in the United States. He is skeptical about the rise of an aristocracy and argues that even if the Union dissolved "a republican form of Government seems ... to be the natural state of the Americans."
