What is The Making of America Seminar?
The Making of America 1-day Seminar is an exciting look at the ingenious system of self-government that America's Founding Fathers discovered and then beautifully wove into a written Constitution. We begin by taking a look at the colonization of and the first permanent settlements in America, including Jamestown and Plymouth. We discuss what the Founders learned as they studied the civilizations of the past and how they implemented the correct principles of government they discovered into a written Constitution. We trace the early days of the original 13 colonies from the writing of the Declaration of Independence to the signing of the Constitution of the United States. We discuss the key personalities and major topics in the Constitutional Convention and then discuss many of the provisions in the US Constitution itself. Questions and comments are always welcome at set intervals throughout the seminar and at the close.
The general outline and timing of our one-day seminar is as follows:
8:30am-12:00 noon - "Developing America 's Great Success Formula"
This is the exciting exploration which Jefferson, Adams, Franklin , Washington and others made in order to rediscover the key to the creation of the first free nation in modern times. We trace their adventure from 1400 B.C. to A.D. 1787
12:00-12:45pm - Lunch break
12:45pm-4:30pm - "The Perfect Plan of Liberty "
A refreshing look at the solid political and economic principles from the preamble through the amendments to the Constitution. You learn perhaps for the first time, how nearly every problem in America today can be solved by restoring these successful concepts.
For the registration fee (set by the host) each participant is given a fill-in-the-blank Seminar Guide. This interactive guide will be very helpful in remembering the important points made at the seminar.
