"Religious Freedom at the Time of the Founding Fathers"
Imagine the religious atmosphere in the colonies prior to the Revolution, then learn how the Founding Fathers overcame that atmosphere with the help of reason and science coming from the Enlightenment.
We will concentrate on Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, and hear their voices.
