One-Day Seminar: Documents and Debates – The Mexican-American War, hosted by Hays CISD (Austin area)
September 10 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
Join Texas teachers to study the causes of and context around the Mexican-American War, with a special focus on the debates that took place between expansion-minded Democrats and their political opponents over President Polk’s justification for war – opponents that included first-term member of the House, Abraham Lincoln. Lunch and a certificate for continuing education will be provided, as well as both digital and physical copies of the readings.
Access digital copies of program materials here after late July 2019.
