Author Event: Nancy Spannaus – Defeating Slavery: Hamilton’s American System Showed the Way

February 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Slavery is not in America’s DNA. Nancy Spannaus argues that the crucial factor was the abandonment of the economic principles of Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton envisioned creating an agro-industrial nation, which could only be built by eliminating the slave system. When Jefferson, and then Andrew Jackson, undermined and crushed Hamilton’s program, they put the nation on the path to war. Meet author Nancy Spannaus and hear more about this troubling story.
