Join us on Monday, November 8th as we welcome back to our speaker series Gene Pisasale who will be presenting his lecture on Forgotten Founding Fathers: Pennsylvania and Delaware in the American Revolution. The struggle for liberty and creation of our system of government depended not only on George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin, but also many people who played a vital role but are not well known today. These men like Robert Morris, John Dickinson, Thomas McKean, Gouverneur Morris, Caesar Rodney, James Wilson, Thomas Fitzsimons, George Clymer, Gunning Bedford, Jr., and George Read from Pennsylvania and Delaware played a critical part in this cause, framing the debates as signers of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, hands on participants in founding of our country.
