In 1787, delegates gathered in Philadelphia to address a wide variety of crises facing the young United States of America and produce the charter for a new government. In modern times, competing political and legal claims are frequently based on what those delegates intended. Mythology about the founders and their work at the 1787 Convention has obscured both fact and legitimate analyses of the events leading to their agreement called the Constitution. The program explores the cast of characters called “founders,” the problems they faced and solutions they fashioned.

Presented by Richard Hesse

Lecture made possible by generous support from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
