Tennessee’s Mexican War Experience
presented by Dr. Johnson, Professor of History, Lipscomb University
Today, beliefs persist that the Mexican-American War was simply a colossal land grab for the United States in its pursuit of the doctrine of Manifest Destiny, and that Tennesseans enlisted to protect and expand the institution of slavery. Dr. Johnson notes in his new book For Duty and Honor*, these stereotypes do not characterize the motives of Tennesseans. Through a succinct examination of journals, memoirs, and letters from the conflict, Johnson reveals that Tennesseans volunteered out of a sense of duty and honor—principles that were deeply embedded in the early national period.
