Author Gordon S. Wood: Power and Liberty: Constitutionalism in the American Revolution
Spend an evening at George Washington’s estate for an evening honoring scholar Dr. Gordon S. Wood as he discusses his career and his new book, Power and Liberty: Constitutionalism in the American Revolution.
In his new book, Gordon S. Wood illuminates critical events in the nation's founding, ranging from the imperial debate that led to the Declaration of Independence to the revolutionary state constitution making in 1776 and the creation of the Federal Constitution in 1787. He discusses slavery and constitutionalism, the emergence of the judiciary as one of the major tripartite institutions of government, the demarcation between public and private, and the formation of states' rights.
Tickets include a signed copy of the book. The in-person event features a reception and book signing.
You can also attend the event virtually.
