Galveston Historical Foundation’s The Republic of Texas: Live Talk on Facebook Live
Thursday, August 6, 2020 | 2:00 pm to 3:30 pmFree
Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) presents a live talk about Texas’ time as an independent country.
Andrew J. Torget will talk about the rise and fall of the Republic of Texas, and how the dire challenges that surrounded the Texas nation forced it to join the United States in 1845.
A historian of 19th century North America at the University of North Texas, Andrew’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.
