Details: To celebrate the three-year anniversary of the opening of the Washington Library, we are joining forces with the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia to host an old-fashioned debate entitled Hamilton v. Jefferson on Executive Power: What Would Washington Say?
Preeminent scholars in the study of America’s Founding Era will defend their positions. Richard Brookhiser and Alan Taylor will represent Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson respectively, while Douglas Bradburn will defend George Washington, as Jeffrey Rosen moderates a Charlie Rose-style conversation with the panelists. Join us for lively and informative conversation, with ample opportunity for questions from the audience, followed by a cocktail reception in the Vaughan Lobby.
