Lecture – “A Revolutionary Friendship: Washington, Jefferson, and the American Republic”

May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is a hybrid event.  Visitors may attend in-person in the Visitor Center Auditorium or virtually on Zoom.  Registration is required.  Log-in information provided at registration.

In partnership with the David Center and the American Philosophical Society Francis D. Cogliano will discuss his new book A Revolutionary Friendship: Washington, Jefferson, and the American Republic.

Cogliao examines the similarities and differences between the two statesmen whose estrangement mirrored key political fissures of the early United States, as the unity of revolutionary zeal gave way to competing visions for the new nation. A Revolutionary Friendship brilliantly captures the dramatic, challenging, and poignant reality that there was no single founding ideal—only compromise between friends and sometime rivals.  Register here.
