“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Workshop: Founding Fathers Explain the Constitution

Free Public Workshop by Author, Mary E. Webster

When: June 19th, 9-10:30 AM followed by 1 hour question and answer time
Where: Sioux Falls, Washington Pavilion, 3rd floor classrooms
Who: Mary E. Webster
Author of The Federalist Papers: In Modern English
The United States Constitution: Annotated with the Federalist Papers

Background: Mary has been called “the spiritual descendent of the Founding Fathers.” She provides a unique view of the Constitution because the Federalist Papers are the only opinions of the Constitution that she has read or studied. She considers the author’s insights into human nature timeless and fascinating. She was so riveted after finishing the interpretation, study and rewriting of Paper Number 1, she couldn’t wait to start studying Paper Number 2. Five years later she completed the task and finished the Modern English version. The author is hopeful that with this new accessibility, others will find them as fascinating as she does.

Workshop Highlights: Different parts of the Constitution will be looked at and how it affects our lives today.

  • The relevancy of The Federalist Papers
  • Republic vs. Democracy
  • Structure of the federal government
  • Separation of powers
  • Federal government responsibilities
  • Unconstitutional powers
  • Bill of Rights
  • Property Rights
