Understanding the Constitution Class
American Principles of Government
In 1787 the founders of our great nation met in convention in Philadelphia. The final product of their
work, the United States Constitution, became the single greatest model for government in the history
of the world. These 230 years represent the longest time in recorded history that a free nation has
existed. What foundational principles did they focus on to ensure liberty for future generations?
This enlightening lecture series covers the principles of government that the founders embraced and
built into the Constitution. Students will learn how these principles are just as relevant today as
they were 230 years ago - not only for our national government, but for our state and local
governments as well!
