From a small expanse of land on the North American continent came four of the nation’s first five presidents—a geographic dynasty whose members led a revolution, created a nation, and ultimately changed the world. In her new book, The Virginia Dynasty: Four Presidents and the Creation of the American Nation, bestselling author Lynne Cheney brings to life George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe, showing that they are not just marble icons but vital figures deeply intent on building a nation where citizens could be free.
We invite you to join us for a Major Issues Lecture Series event with Lynne Cheney to explore her new book. Ashbrook Executive Director Jeff Sikkenga will host a conversation with Dr. Cheney, and questions will be welcomed from the audience.
