Beeman on Madison and Henry
Distinguished historian Richard Beeman returns to Washington College on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 5:30 p.m. to share his insights into how the personalities and contributions of James Madison and Patrick Henry shaped the founding of the nation. This second installment of Beeman’s three-part “Meet the Founders” series takes place in Decker Theatre, Gibson Center for the Arts. Beeman will bring both men to life as he outlines the struggle between Madison’s federal convictions and Henry’s state’s rights views, a struggle that resonates today. Sponsored by the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience, where Beeman is a fellow, the series concludes November 14 with the spotlight on George Washington. It is free and open to the public.
