Event Details

American Founders Luncheon
The Indispensable Patriot: Samuel Adams & the Quest for Independence
Dr. Gary Smith ’72

September 13, 2011

If George Washington is the “indispensable man” in winning the Revolutionary War and establishing the new republic, Samuel Adams deserves this title for his role moving the colonies toward severing ties with England. More than any other American, Adams publicized colonists’ grievances, defended their rights, and mobilized them to protest English policies.  Today, however, Samuel Adams is largely forgotten — most Americans connect him only with the beer that bears his name.  Inspired by his understanding of Scripture and strong faith in God, the devout Congregationalist continually argued that the American cause was righteous and he worked to achieve three principal aims: attain American independence, protect people’s constitutional liberties, and construct an upright society.  Join us for lunch on September 13, 2011, for $17.76 at Pittsburgh’s Rivers Club to hear Grove City College historian Dr. Gary Smith discuss “The Indispensable Patriot: Samuel Adams and the Quest for American Independence.”
