To cap their Constitution Day celebrations, The Constitutional Sources Project will host David McCullough for a special “members only” constitutional lecture. Mr. McCullough will discuss why the Constitutional Convention nearly failed before it began. What role did fear play in the Convention being called? From where did the fear most stem -- Shay's Rebellion, mounting state debts, inflation, or international piracy?
These questions and members' own will be addressed in this compelling lecture by America's favorite history-teller. Law students from across the country will also participate via simultaneous webcast on ConSource.org.
David McCullough is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author, historian and narrator of several documentaries including "The Civil War," "Brooklyn Bridge" and "The Statue of Liberty." Works include John Adams, 1776 and the National Book Award-winning The Path Between the Seas.
"I think history is a source of strength," says Pulitzer Prize-winning
historian David McCullough. He describes history as "an antidote to
the hubris of the present," as well as a reminder that great
accomplishments -- including the United States Constitution -- have
resulted from contention and strife.
