Date: February 26, 2022
Time: 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM MST
Event Description:
Join Dr. Alice Baumgartner for a fascinating lecture on slaves who fled to Mexico rather than going North. Historian Alice L. Baumgartner tells the story of why Mexico abolished slavery and how its increasingly radical antislavery policies fueled the sectional crisis in the United States. Southerners hoped that annexing Texas and invading Mexico in the 1840s would stop runaways and secure slavery's future. Instead, the seizure of Alta California and Nuevo México upset the delicate political balance between free and slave states. This is a revelatory and essential new perspective on antebellum America and the causes of the Civil War.
