One Man's Hero screening

The Reel Ireland Series 2018 announces the screening of One Man's Hero proudly sponsored by the Irish Studies, Latin and Caribbean American Studies, and Catholic Studies Programs. Join us with Professor Alfonso Garcia-Osuna at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25th at the Guthart Cultural Center Theater. 

Dr. Garcia-Osuna will introduce the film -- a little-known story of 16 Irish-born American soldiers in 1845 who cross the Mexican border to attend Mass only to be captured by the revolutionary Cortina as enemies of Mexico.  News arrives that the U.S. and Mexico are at war, and the Irish deserters are presented with the choice of fighting on the side of Mexico under Cortina, or be executed as enemies of his country.

 

Post-talk and refreshments.

Classes are welcome.  Sign-in sheets will be provided.
