ALEXANDER HAMILTON BIRTHDAY EVENT
When: Thursday, January 10, 2019
Speaker, Luke Thompson, PhD
In light of all the controversy around the press and its relationship to government, the talk will be about "Hamilton's First Amendment". As most people know, James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights and it was eventually approved by the Congress in modified form. Hamilton viewed the measure as unnecessary, but understood it as a political necessity given the promises made during the ratification process. Despite this, Hamilton had meaningful views on the freedoms of religion, assembly, and press protected by the First Amendment - ideas that often clash with our own.
