The February days of the 1848 revolution forced Marmier to be confined to Paris. Salvandy lost his portfolio in the change of government, and was replaced by Falloux, a liberal Catholic. After getting Falloux's approval, Marmier set out on a journey that took him from Paris to other places such as New York, Philadelphia, and New Orleans. During this time, he predicted the rupture of the union between North and South on the issue of slavery, thus hinting at some of the tensions that were to give rise to the civil war in just over ten years' time. In addition to the above, this chapter considers Marmier's Lettres sur l'Amérique and his expedition from New Orleans to Montevideo.
