Just What Did They Originally Intend?

  • A Casual Conversation with the Framers of the U.S. Constitution

    September 13, 2010

    Celebrate the 223rd anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution by sitting in on a casual conversation with five of the Constitution’s authors (Ben Franklin, James Madison, Charles Pinckney, Alexander Hamilton, and John Dickenson), as well as one of the most influential opponents of the document (George Clinton). The discussion provides insight to the Founding Fathers’ thoughts when they wrote the U.S. Constitution, as well as how they might view contemporary constitutional challenges. Audience participation and questions are encouraged.

    Cosponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and Student Leadership.
