Sharing this free course offering by Hillsdale College.
I have been interested with the creation of the Constitution. With all that is going on I think it is important to understand what the founding fathers were thinking when they crafted and struggled through creating the foundation for a new government, and its relationship with its citizens. I am hoping this course will help me better understand the basis for the Constitution.
I will be listening to this series to learn more. I will share an update on my experience.
Encourage you all to pursue to learn more.
