Today marks the 30th Anniversary of Vatican / United States OFFICIAL relations. First Things has a good post on this at God's Envoy that goes into the history.
Our Envoy to the Holy See has some remarks on this big day over at this blog.
One of the most knowledgeable people on this topic is actually Cardinal Dolan. I think he studied American Catholic History at some length in college. On the occasional of the 25th anniversary at an event at the Catholic University of America he talked at great length about the history of American and Vatican relations since the beginning of this nation .. Sadly I am still on the hunt for that video which was on C-Span if I recall correctly or a transcript.
