Hamilton & Jefferson

Taught by Matt Hallock

A graduate of the School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, 
I live in Brooklyn and work as a designer for Mother New York. 

I enjoy Abraham Lincoln, the banjo, Levi's Vintage Clothing, blues music, Allagash White, coffee, and Japanese post-war literature, not necessarily in that order.

On the campaign trail, Romney has criticized Obama's big government spending and promised to downsize the federal government if elected.

This course will help dislodge the freshman American history you lost by examining the origins of these arguments with the interwoven careers of two Founding Fathers: Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson

Through the Constitutional Convention, Alien & Sedition Acts, Louisiana Purchase and even a bit of dueling, we'll see why the political landscape of the late 1700s has so much in common with 2012.
