About the Seminar

As in the past, the seminar will involve a lecture and guided conversation about key primary documents/texts on the topic. Our purpose is to enhance teacher content about the role of statesmanship in a democratic republic. These documents will be sent in a pdf form to you upon your acceptance. In addition, there will be a guided tour of the Valley Forge battlefield on Saturday by Freedoms Foundation Vice President Jeff Scott on June 10th. You won’t want to miss this! We are further pleased and honored to be joined by Tony Williams, Senior Fellow at the Bill of Rights Institute, Washington author and historian of the American Founding, as the guest instructor.
