Info

In the beginning, there was a Declaration that espoused fundamental rights possessed by all human beings. How to secure those rights, however, depended on a system of government that balanced personal liberty with governmental power. How does one arrive at the correct balance? What did the Founders get right, and wrong? How have their decisions shaped the relationship between the Federal and State governments over the last 240 years? Is the balance still correct for America today? Join us for a thought-provoking exploration that Revisits America's Founding Era. 

Guest speaker is Dr. Matthew Warshauer, CCSU Professor of History. Part of the Revisiting the Founding Era program series.

Registration requested.
