The American Revolution on the Spanish Borderlands – WEBINAR

October 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

In this online program, Kathleen DuVal illuminates the American Revolution on the Spanish borderlands—recounting clashes between the Spanish and British forces over the territory along the Gulf of Mexico. The capture of Mobile and the Siege of Pensacola were critical to the outcome of the Revolutionary War, the future of the American South, and the lives of the people of the Gulf Coast. In these conflicts, colonists, Native Americans and African Americans fought for their own versions of independence and, in the process, affected the outcome of the war
