Diplomatic Nationalism, Territorial Expansion and the Missouri Admission Crisis (1818-1821)
As Missourians pursued entrance into the Union of states, the United States dramatically extended its western and southern borders. Dr. William S. Belko, executive director of the Missouri Humanities Council, will place Missouri's quest for statehood in the larger context of international diplomacy and the consequent and aggressive territorial expansion of the country in the wake of the War of 1812, a rapid westward migration that produced a more severe sectional conflict over the expansion of slavery and the forced retreat of the American Indian. A Missouri Bicentennial Program.
