Bill of Rights Lecture Series: Session 5
The Ashbrook Center’s Professor Gordon Lloyd gave a six-part lecture series to a group of teachers at the Reagan Library, in which he discussed several key perspectives on the development, writing, ratification, and implementation of the Bill of Rights. Episodes run from 50-60 minutes each. Session 5’s topic is that of the first Congress, and how this body of legislators worked to draft what would become the Bill of Rights.
