Kent Library Athenaeum Event--Wrestling with Washington: Historical Memory and the Fourth of July in the Anteellum Midwest

Wednesday, Apr 24, 2013 12:00p to 1:00p

Americans in the early 19th century wrestled with their role in the development of the United States. They revered the founding fathers and sought to emulate their patriotism. This "first generation" recognized their unique opportunity to shape conceptions of patriotic loyalty and American nationalism. This ongoing tension between past and present-wrestling emerged on the 4th of July and provides an important window into American national identity in United States history.
