Hybrid Hybrid Event

Fort Leavenworth: Randy Mullis: “Bleeding Kansas and British Kaffraria in the 1850s”

July 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Many Kansans are familiar with the Bleeding Kansas era of American history in context of American westward expansion. Few, however, may know of a comparable event of British eastward expansion that occurred in modern day South Africa (British Kaffraria) during the 1850s.   Dr. Mullis’s presentation assesses select American and British political and military approaches to expansion during the 1850s to identify “common” Western strategic approaches and legacies.
