Event description

Description

Explore the ways in which American political culture draws on Founding Era myths, and review recent scholarship that challenges the way that most contemporary Americans understand our constitutional foundations. Join us for a town hall discussion of selected readings from founding-era documents led by USF History professor Dr. Philip Levy, President of the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society, Mr. Rand Scholet, and the author of I, Eliza Hamilton, Ms. Susan Holloway Scott.

A curated reader of primary resources that illustrate the era's themes is available to all participants by visiting the Founding Era website: http://foundingera.org/downloads/foundingera/GLI_RevisitingtheFoundingEra_Reader.pdf

This program is part of Revisiting the Founding Era, a three-year national initiative of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History presented in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Constitution Center, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
