One-Day Seminar: Competing Visions: Madison and Hamilton hosted by Pennsylvania Department of Education at IU#11 (McVeytown, PA)

April 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

James Madison and Alexander Hamilton were allies as authors of the Federalist Papers, and yet their views on how the new government should function and what it should do grew increasingly different, and opposed, as time passed. This program explores their similarities and differences about how the Constitution should be interpreted and implemented, what powers the new government and its officials should wield, and how these positions shaped the early party system and have, in fact, impacted American political thought since. Both history and government teachers will find useful documents, questions, and ideas in this program.

Registration: 8:30 am
