Join us for our latest online event with Professor William Naphy on Thursday 30 November from 5pm (GMT) 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 see 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.
