By popular demand, historian Robert May makes his fourth return to Auburn for a fascinating new lecture on Seward’s efforts to fight slavery. Drawing on his book, Slavery, Race, and Conquest in the Tropics, May will discuss how Seward fought not only against the growth of the slave power in the U.S., but also southern visions of creating a vast slaveholding empire abroad. This event will take place at the Equal Rights Heritage Center from 7pm-8pm, tickets are $10 for Museum Members and $15 for Non-Members and are available for purchase on the Seward House Museum website.
