But... but how accurate a picture is this (of 'yeomanry' in the
non-plantation  states)?


Interesting point.  If this is the same E G Wakefield I've heard about, his
theories on colonization and economics were formed during a three year
prison stint around 1830 for bigamy I think.  His "theory" was produced as
he tried to convince the state of his rehabilitation.  What he actually knew
about conditions in the US is unclear.  Certainly we know that the growth of
capitalist agriculture and the manufacturing sector complement each other,
both tracking and stimulating the population growth, immigration, in and to
the North. .
