Atlanta Legal Nurse Consultant At University Of Georgia Constitution Day
"The framers were deeply read and also revolutionaries and much of their public policy was derived from their experience."
Liz Buddenhagen, RN attended “What did the Constitution Originally Mean?” at the University of Georgia Chapel presented by Dr. Jack Rakove of Stanford University on September 17, 2015.
In 1997, Rakove won the Pulitzer Prize for his book, Original Meanings: Politics and Ideas in the Making of the Constitution. He is author and editor of several other books on topics related to the American founding. In addition, he has served as a consultant and expert witness in several cases in New York, has written four amicus curiae briefs for the Supreme Court and has been a guest on PBS News Hour and The Daily Show.
Rakove compared the originalist and historian points of view regarding the thinking and intentions of the founding fathers in the development of the Constitution. He said that James Madison’s notes of pre-Constitution documents what the intentions of framers of the Constitution were. He mentioned that “the framers were deeply read and also revolutionaries and much of their public policy was derived from their experience.” He noted it was a very creative and dynamic time in Philadelphia.
There was also an exhibit of historical documents related to the Constitution and the nation’s founding on display in front of the Chapel hosted by Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
The event sponsors were School of Public and International Affairs, American Founding Group, UGA Law School and the Charles Koch Foundation.
Constitution Day is the annual celebration of the day that representatives to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia completed and signed the U.S. Constitution in 1787.
