The American Experience in the West Indies, 1740-1742
Jun 16, 2022
Thirty-five years before the battles of Lexington and Concord, the British colonies in North America raised a regiment to serve in the British Army for an expedition to seize control of the Spanish West Indies. The expedition marked the first time American soldiers deployed overseas. In this lecture, Craig Chapman will discuss the Americans' role in the conflict, their terrible suffering, and the awful results of the expedition.
This lecture will be held via Zoom. Registration ends at 5:30pm on the day of the lecture.
