Royal Prerogatives and Revolutionary Principles: Connecting the revolutionary past to today’s legal debates over presidential immunity

Join us at Gunston Hall for our commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the Fairfax Resolves. This document, drafted by George Mason and George Washington, was a turning point in American colonial ideas about independence. The ideas have gone on to shape how we think about democracy and government today. Dr. Holly Brewer, University of Maryland, will present her research on the Fairfax Resolves and its connection to modern discussions of presidential immunity. At the end, we’ll open the floor for your questions.

Reception to follow.
