Register for "The Great Triumvirate: Calhoun, Clay and Webster"

December 4, 2021, 9:15 AM ET - 1:00 PM ET | Hosted by: Florida Council for History Education (Held Online)

This seminar will focus on the political thought, statesmanship and diplomacy of Henry Clay, John C Calhoun, and Daniel Webster. Collectively known as the “Great Triumvirate” because of their dominance of the American political system for nearly half a century. These three men helped to shape and define the American conception of equality and liberty during the antebellum era.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
