Imperial America: Texas, Manifest Destiny & the Invasion

Imperial America: Texas, Manifest Destiny & the Invasion

This is a past event

Join Professor William Naphy as he expands upon 'Imperial America: Texas, Manifest Destiny, & the Invasion'.

Regarded by many, including Lincoln, as a war of imperial expansion, the Mexican-American War is often seen as marking the first significant act, after the Louisiana Purchase, in American westward expansion. The talk will examine the war and its place in the concept of Manifest Destiny. The concept is often seen as a belief that America should encompass the continent from 'sea to shining sea'.  This overlooks ideas that America should also expand north and south.
