The 1846 U.S. Invasion of Mexico and Transformation of North America

Lecture Description

The 1846-1848 war between the United States and Mexico has often been described as one of America’s “forgotten” wars, but the bloody and divisive conflict transformed North America in a variety of ways which are worth remembering. This lecture will explore the lasting impact of the war on the cultures of the United States and Mexico, on concepts of race and class, and the meaning of patriotism and dissent.
