Greek Independence in the Early American Republic

March 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In the early days of the American Republic the question of Greek Independence was one of the major issues of the day, frequently standing as a proxy for America’s own tumultuous internal politics. This included the debate of slavery, where the Turkish occupation of Greek lands was often used as neutral stand-in for the topic of American chattel slavery. In this special NHM Discussion for Greek Independence Day, we will explore the American interest in the Greek War of Independence and its consequences for both young nations.
