The SHM’s lunchtime series continues. If William Seward had his way, the Dominican Republic would be a U.S. state today. The Secretary of State, however, came up short. In this talk, Purdue University Professor Emeritus of History Robert E. May will explain what went wrong and introduce you to the audacious woman from Troy, New York who defied all nineteenth-century gender norms and tried to bend Seward and U.S. foreign policy to her own will. This free event will take place at the Equal Rights Heritage Center on April 23rd at 12pm.
