The Founding Fathers: What Were They Thinking?
Tuesday, May 16th, 7pm
Belmont Corner Meeting House, 16 Sargent Street

In 1787 delegates gathered in Philadelphia to address a wide variety of crises facing the young United States of America and produced a charter for a new government. In modern times, competing political and legal claims are frequently based on what those delegates intended. Mythology about the founders and their work at the 1787 Convention has obscured both fact and legitimate analysis of the events leading to the agreement called the Constitution. Presenter Richard Hesse explores the cast of characters called "founders," the problems they faced, and the solutions they fashioned.            603-267-8300
