American Dialogue: The Founding Fathers and Us
- Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
- Time: 4:00 pm
- Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC
The story of history is often a conversation between past and present, and in American Dialogue, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Joseph J. Ellis focuses on the often-asked question, “What would the Founding Fathers think?” Ellis gives us a deeply insightful examination of the relevance of the views of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and John Adams to some of the most divisive issues in America today.
