William Seward and Slavery’s Expansion in the Other Direction

Sep 22nd 2022 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

By popular demand, historian Robert May makes his fourth return to Auburn for a fascinating new lecture on Seward’s efforts to fight slavery. Drawing on his book, Slavery, Race, and Conquest in the Tropics, May will discuss how Seward fought not only against the growth of the slave power in the U.S., but also southern visions of creating a vast slaveholding empire abroad. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for Museum Members.
