Lecture: Self-Evident Truths with Author Richard Brown
How did Americans in the generations following the Declaration of Independence translate its lofty ideals into practice? In his talk, Richard Brown, distinguished historian and author of Self- Evident Truths: Contesting Equal Rights from the Revolution to the Civil War, shares how the early Republic struggled with every form of social inequality, despite its founding statement that “all men are created equal.” Join the Litchfield Historical Society on Sunday, November 5 at 3 p.m. for an exploration of the ways revolutionary political ideas penetrated popular thinking and everyday practice.
