The War of 1812 in the Mississippi Territory
via Zoom

Friday, Jan. 15
Part of our Mississippi History Zoomed to You Series.

USM historian Max Grivno examines how, In the wake of the American Revolution, the United States had a tenuous hold on the Gulf Coast. Spain maintained several outposts, native confederacies controlled most of the land, and Spain and France cast covetous on the region.  This lecture examines how the War of 1812 transformed the Gulf Coast, creating a world dominated by the United States and in which native peoples found their economic and political freedom more and more circumscribed.
