A Wicked War: Polk, Clay, Lincoln and the 1846 U.S Invasion of Mexico

Long seen as unjust and mercenary, the Mexican-American War resulted in U.S. control of the vast Southwest, paved the way for Civil War, and led to the political rise of Abraham Lincoln. Historian Amy S. Greenberg discusses her book A Wicked War. Greenberg is Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of History and Women’s Studies at Penn State University. Among her books are Manifest Manhood and the Antebellum American Empire. Co-sponsored by Kansas City Museum and the Latino Writers Collective. RSVP
