by on January 16, 2014


The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum will offer two exciting professional development opportunities, totaling more than 10 hours of credit, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the next month.


“Mr. and Mrs. Polk’s War: A Presidential Partnership for Texas and Manifest Destiny”

Join the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum and SMU’s Center for Presidential History in welcoming Dr. Amy S. Greenburg, the Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of History and Women’s Studies at Penn State University, as she speaks about the “Presidential partnership” formed by the Polks and the impact of the U.S.-Mexican War on the growth of America.

A light reception will precede the event beginning at 5:30. Several of Professor Greenberg’s publications will also be available for purchase and signing after the presentation. FREE parking passes will be emailed to registered guests before the event.
