The popularity of the recent film, "The Patriot," has sparked widespread debate over the real people, ideas and events of America's revolutionary founding. Mindful of the revolutionís principles, the first generation of Americans reinvented themselves and their society. But how exactly did their values transform politics, economics, and culture in the new republic and for our own age?†
The special program, "The American Revolution and the Legacy of Liberty" -- to be videotaped by C-SPAN for future broadcast -- will feature UCLA historian JOYCE APPLEBY (former president of both the American Historical Association and Organization of American Historians), author of the new book, INHERITING THE REVOLUTION: The First Generation of Americans, and historian HANS EICHOLZ, Senior Fellow, Liberty Fund, and author of the new book, HARMONIZING SENTIMENTS: The Declaration of Independence and the Jeffersonian Idea of Self-Government. The program will also feature an "In Memoriam" tribute to the late National Book Award-winning historian, HENRY MAYER.
Reception and seminar: 6:30-8:30 p.m., September 7, 2000.
$30.00 per person, includes 1 copy of either of the books, Inheriting the Revolution or A Son of Thunder or Harmonizing Sentiments (price includes California sales tax). Copies can be reserved for pick-up at the door or are available for shipping (please add $3/book shipping/handling).
