A New Hampshire Humanities event hosted by the Friends of the Conway Public Library presented by Richard Hesse
In 1787 delegates gathered in Philadelphia to address a wide variety of crises facing the young United States of America and produced a charter for a new government. In modern times, competing political and legal claims are frequently based on what those delegates intended. Mythology about the founders and their work at the 1787 Convention has obscured both fact and legitimate analysis of the events leading to the agreement called the Constitution. Richard Hesse explores the cast of characters called "founders," the problems they faced, and the solutions they fashioned.
This program may be viewed from home or in the meeting room at the Library.
New Hampshire Humanities programs are made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
