Founding Fathers together again, September 17

Posted: Friday, August 30, 2019

Join Alexander Hamilton and James Madison as they talk about writing the Constitution of the United States on Tuesday, September 17 at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. at the Merillat Centre for the Arts, Zurcher Auditorium, at Huntington University for the presentation.

Celebrating the 232nd Anniversary of our Constitution and the City of Huntington’s 171st Anniversary, the pair will bring American history to life once again in Huntington. In 2018, the Rushmore Live celebration included a presentation by men portraying George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

These are men whose achievements and ideas shaped and have sustained America’s greatness. They will bring American history to life at the Merillat Centre in the evening, and to students in the Huntington County Community School Corporation during the day.

Alexander Hamilton will be portrayed by Ian Rose, left, and James Madison will be represented by Kyle Jenks. Both men will be attired in period clothing, and reenact the conversation taking place during the signing of the Constitution. They will answer questions following the presentation.

The public is invited and admission is free. Major support for the program is being provided by the City of Huntington and Huntington University.
