After the wars of independence, the old Spanish colonies faces many challenges that seriously affected the formation of nations, while the United States advanced in its economic, territorial, and industrial development. "Estados Unidos en los diarios de viaje" analyzes these conditions in the United States through 19th century travel journals and memoirs and other books by intellectuals, including Lorenzo de Zavala, José Antonio Saco, Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, and Benjamín Vicuña Mackenna. The work also explores how these texts influenced the conformation of national projects in each of the countries.
