An Evening with Robert Strauss in conversation with Stephen Fried discussing John Marshall: The Final Founder

An Evening with Robert Strauss in conversation with Stephen Fried discussing John Marshall: The Final Founder Online

The Supreme Court met in the basement of the new Capitol building in Washington when John Marshall took over, showing just what the executive and legislative branches thought of the judiciary.  However, 18th- and 19th-century contemporaries believed John Marshall to be, if not the equal of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, at least very close to that pantheon. 

When did the Founding end?  In his new book John Marshall: The Final Founder, journalist and historian Robert Strauss recounts how the Chief Justice acted as the glue that held the Union together after the original founding days.  Strauss will be in conversation with award-winning journalist Stephen Fried, author of Rush: Revolution, Madness & the Visionary Doctor Who Became a Founding Father. Entertaining historical tidbits from Strauss will surely be devoured along with more bits and pieces served up by Fried at this feast for history lovers.

Co-sponsored by Radnor Historical Society. Books will be available from Main Point Books.
