Inventing America: Liberty for All
brings our Founding Fathers back to life in a TV talk show before a live audience. In this episode, James Madison (John Douglas Hall), Thomas Jefferson (Bill Barker), Alexander Hamilton (Hal Bidlack) and Patrick Henry (Richard Schumann) reveal the conflicts and infighting behind the new U.S. Constitution and how that led to the Bill of Rights. The program features a Q&A with college students in which the Founders apply the Bill of Rights to our own time. It concludes with Henry's famous "Give me liberty, or give me death" speech that inspired the idea of America in the first place.
