Webinar – Hamilton vs. Jefferson – Great American Debates

October 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

REGISTER HERE

Would America be a commercial republic, engaged in trade with the rest of the world and turning steadily toward industry and, eventually, urbanization? Or would the American experiment in self-government be best promoted and maintained by a nation of yeoman farmers, spread across a continent in small towns? Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson were intellectual giants of the American Revolution, and although their ideas about the shape America should take differed significantly, the passion and egotism with which both men advocated for their ideas was comparable and, unfortunately, only served to increase the rancor between them and their supporters.
