 讲座题目:牛仔、印第安人和水牛:美国在十九世纪初到中叶的迅速扩张

 

王副领事将讨论美国扩张的历史:从大西洋沿岸13个新独立的州,到成为一个从一个大洋跨越到另一个大洋的国家。在这个过程中,他将谈及一些至今仍广为人知的美国经典形象:马背上孤独的牛仔,骄傲不屈的印第安人,还有那成千上万、穿越空旷平原、寻找新生活的移民。其间拿破仑卖掉了一些地、德克萨斯州自立为国、加州开始成为黄金州!回顾这段时期能让大家更好地了解至今仍在推动美国的美国精神,以及当不同文化在大平原上碰撞时美国所犯过的一些错误。

 

Cowboys, Indians, and Dead Buffalo: The Rapid Expansion of the U.S. from 1800-1850.

 

Vice Consul Kato-Wallace will discuss the history of the U.S. expansion: from 13 newly independent states on the Atlantic coast to a nation that spans from sea to shining sea. In the process he will touch on American icons that still resonate today; the lone cowboy on horseback, the proud, defiant indian, and the multitude of settlers who crossed the empty plains in search of a new life. Along the way Napoleon sells some land, Texas becomes its own country, and California gets its start as the Golden state! A look at this period of time will give the audience an insight into the American spirit that still drives the U.S. today, as well as an understanding of the mistakes that were made as cultures collided on the Great Plains.
