Sharon Wood, producer and director(Lucasfilm, 2009) To Conquer or Redeem tells the dramatic story of the Spanish-American and US-Philippine Wars in the context of continental expansion and conquest. As Part One of Manifest Destiny, a documentary series on U.S. foreign policy, this film tracks the evolving role of exceptionalism as a rebellious colony grew into a continental power and then an overseas empire. You’ll never see William McKinley—or these wars—the same way again. Mark Bradley (University of Chicago) will introduce the film, and Sharon Wood will be present to participate in the post-screening discussion led by Professor Bradley.
