Jonathan Den Hartog: The American Revolution & Republicanism | BRI Scholar Talks

In this week's Scholar Talk, BRI Senior Teaching Fellow Tony Williams sits down with Jonathan Den Hartog.
In vivid detail, Den Hartog describes the republican ideals that influenced the American Revolution and
Founding. He'll explain how the concept of republicanism helped shape American thinking about
constitutional principles and civic virtues in framing the nation. What were the political and economic
problems that arose after the Revolution, and how did the Federalists and Anti-Federalists strive to address them?
