Join two Nation Builders to discuss the Cost of Freedom during the formation of the United States; the impact on soldiers and civilians in the war, the fight for religious freedom and separation of church and state, the arguments at the Constitutional Convention regarding the Bill of Rights, the self-liberation and emancipation of some enslaved people and the return to and continuance of bondage for others, the impact on families that stayed intact and those that were split apart, etc. Speak with the Nation Builders, and the historians who portray them, to give context to the ins and outs of their 18th-century world.
