Galveston Historical Foundation presents The Republic of Texas Talk on Facebook Live
Friday, May 22, 2020 | 2:00 pm to 3:00 pmFree
Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) presents a free talk by Andrew J. Torget, a historian of 19th century North America at the University of North Texas, about the rise and fall of the Republic of Texas.
He’ll discuss how the dire challenges that surrounded the Texas nation forced it to join the United States in 1845.
Torget’s work has revolved around two intersecting themes: the expansion of the American South into the West, and developing new digital methods for research, scholarship, and teaching.
The talk is free to view live on Galveston Historical Foundation’s Facebook page, and will be available for later viewing there and on its website, along with similar recent talks in the series. Click here to view or for more information.
