It was a good night at the David Library of the American Revolution. I had the chance to lecture to a full house about religion and the Constitution. The Q&A got a little feisty, but this is usually the case whenever I speak about religion and the founding. I also got to meet a lot of great people who are seriously interested in trying to figure out this complicated subject. I even got to meet a guy who carves pens from trees associated with signers of the U.S. Constitution and I received my very own pen carved from a tree sheltering the grave of George Clymer.
One of the highlights of the night was finally getting to meet Jonathan Rowe, the tireless blogger from American Creation. We chatted briefly about blogging and the ubiquitous Tom Van Dyke! My biggest regret was that I could not take him up on his offer to grab an adult beverage at a local tavern. I am serious about that raincheck, Jon!
Thanks to Meg McSweeney, Will Tatum, and the rest of the David Library staff for their generous hospitality. It is always good to visit this wonderful center for the study of the American Revolution!
