Event Description

William diGiacomantonio currently serves as the chief historian of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society. Before joining USCHS, he spent most of his career on the editorial team that recently completed the 22-volume Documentary History of the First Federal Congress. His new book details over 200 letters and other writings by George Thatcher, a country lawyer and state supreme court justice who served as a U.S. representative from Maine throughout the Federalist Era (1789-1801)–—the most critical and formative period of American constitutional history.

This event is free and open to the public.
