Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison all fought to transform their former British colonies into the new country of the United States of America, but they disagreed profoundly about what kind of country it should become. Historian Andrew Shankman will speak about how Hamilton sought to build a republican United States that was completely incompatible with the republic that Jefferson and Madison envisioned. The two wealthy Virginians and the scrappy immigrant famously came to despise each other, creating two divergent visions of the U.S. that continue to be contested today.

Andrew Shankman is associate professor of history at Rutgers University and author of "Original Intents: Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, and the American Founding."

Lectures are offered at 10 am and 2 pm.
