Nation-Makers: Jefferson - The Evolution of the Presidency and Expansion of the Nation
This individual and independent lecture is one part of an overall theme, “Nation-Makers,” that will emphasize the careers of seven men—all contemporaries and from a small portion of Virginia—and their out-sized role in helping to create the United States. Sometimes they shared political outlooks, sometimes they were political opponents. These men are George Washington, George Mason, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and John Marshall.
