Mr. Polk’s War: War Experiences in Mexico and the U.S., 1846-1848 By Dr. Greg Hospodor, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College 6:30 p.m. Friday, December 14, 2018 When he assumed office in 1845, James Polk was a man on a mission. His goal was territorial expansion or the extension “of peace over additional territories and increasing millions.” President Polk vigorously pursued his territorial ambitions in the present-day American Southwest and Northwest, peacefully when he could, but through military means when necessary. As a result, Polk added more territory to the national domain than any other president. He also led the nation to victory in a war with Mexico from 1846-1848. The Kansas Museum of History is open until 6:30 p.m., admission is half price after 5 p.m. The Museum Store is also open until 6:30 p.m. Captured: The Extraordinary Adventures of Colonel Hughes Ending December 2, 2018 Kansas Museum of History · Topeka
