Event description

Description

The U.S. Capitol Historical Society will hold its annual symposium on May 4, 2018. Speakers from across the country will discuss issues arising from congressional action during the post-Civil War Reconstruction period in Congressional Meeting Room North of the Capitol Visitor Center from 9:30 am to 5 pm.

Reconstructing the Constitution, Remaking Citizenship, and Reconsidering a Presidential Succession will give special attention to the Reconstruction Amendments—especially the Fourteenth Amendment, which was ratified 150 years ago—the impeachment of Pres. Andrew Johnson, and questions of citizenship and civil rights stretching from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries.

The event is free and open to the public. More information is posted on our website, www. uschs.org.

Speakers include Brandi C. Brimmer (Morgan State University); Orville Vernon Burton (Clemson University); Gabriel “Jack” Chin (UC Davis School of Law); Paul Finkelman (symposium co-director and president, Gratz College); Alysa Landry (journalist and Gratz College); Mark Summers (University of Kentucky); and Rebecca E. Zietlow (University of Toledo College of Law).
