Faith of the Founding Fathers - How Much Do We Really Know?
June 4, 11 & 18, 9:00 am Room 218

Are their church affiliations and religious convictions easily documented, or do we have to look more closely at the historical record? Stuart Nixon will help us as we try to get behind popular rhetoric and examine the more complicated religious context of Early America and the Revolutionary Era.
