Colonial Capital Kiwanis learns about conflicts among the Founding Fathers

Paul Aron, Director of Publications for Colonial Williamsburg, recently presented a program to the Kiwanis Club of Colonial Capital about the conflicts and differences among the Founding Fathers of the United States. Mr. Aron pointed out that the Founding Fathers were united in their desire for independence from Britain, but had starkly differing views about how the new nation should be governed and their debates with each other were very similar in form to what we see among politicians today. Mr. Aron has published a book titled "Founding Feuds" which shows many details of the arguments that existed in the post revolutionary time period. Pictured above are club member Mitchell Farkas, Aron and Club President Larry Shoberg.
