Program Title INTEGRITY IN AN IMPERIALISTIC AGE: The Man Who Led the Take Over of the Southwest and California
 
Program Description In 1846, General Stephen Watts Kearny led the "bloodless conquest" of New Mexico, where he established a civil government, instituted a legal system that incorporated existing Mexican law and land grants, and was ahead of his time in respecting cultural diversity and human rights. His fascinating expedition -- which added almost a third to America's current territory -- involved the Mormon Battalion, Kit Carson, and a clash with Fremont and Stockton.
