One-Day Seminar: Jefferson & Education hosted by the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY)

August 14, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Thomas Jefferson portrait by Rembrandt Peale, 1800

Join TAH.org at the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY) for a one-day seminar on Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson believed that “if a nation expects to be ignorant and free… it expects what never was and never will be.” This seminar will focus not only on Jefferson’s education and his plans for educational reform in Virginia but also his founding of the United States Military Academy in 1802 and the University of Virginia in 1819. In what ways and to what extent did Jefferson, who championed “the illimitable freedom of the human mind,” in response to changing circumstances adapt and revise his ideas about the purpose and promise of education?

Registration: 8:30 am
