Wed Jan 29, 6:30pm–7:30pm
Presented by: Anderson House & The American Revolution Institute
Tickets · Free with RSVP
William C. diGiacomantonio, chief historian of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society, discusses and signed copies of his edited volume of selected letters of George Thatcher, a U.S. representative from Maine throughout the Federalist Era—the most critical and formative period of American constitutional history. The more than two hundred letters Thatcher wrote during his forty-year career as a country lawyer, national legislator and state supreme court justice document his experiences as a New England Federalist, abolitionist, religious dissenter and pedagogical innovator.
The talk will last approximately 45 minutes, followed by a book signing and refreshments. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event.
