The U.S.–Mexico War exhibit

A new exhibit, Celebrating and Forgetting, Lamenting and Remembering: The U.S.–Mexico War, 1846-1848, focuses attention on the “forgotten” U.S.-Mexico War through letters, diaries, daguerreotypes, sketches, maps, and other materials. The U.S.–Mexico War was a formative event in US and Mexican history that continues to have repercussions. The struggling Republic of Mexico lost over half its territory while the U.S. gained Texas, California and the Southwest. Today, however, the war is largely overlooked in popular culture.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 817-272-3393.

April 1-August 30, 2014. Special Collections, Sixth floor, Central Library.
