"Religion, American Identity, and the Mexican-American War"

Speaker: John C. Pinheiro, Professor of History, Aquinas College, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Time: Wednesday, 21 October 2015, 7:00 pm Place: Dezember Room, Walter Stiern Library

Based on his recent book, Missionaries of Republicanism: A Religious History of the Mexican-American War (Oxford University Press, 2014), Professor Pinheiro explains how anti-Catholicism was the key component of a nearly universal discourse that enabled Americans to talk about, understand, or find meaning in the war between Mexico and the United States.
