The Great Divide: the Conflict Between Washington and Jefferson
The Great Divide: the Conflict Between Washington and Jefferson that Defined a Nation by Thomas Fleming Join us on Monday, April 13th as we welcome renowned historian and writer Thomas Fleming as he presents his new book β€œThe Great Divide: the Conflict Between Washington and Jefferson that Defined a Nation.” The book discusses how Jefferson disagreed violently with Washington's approach to the presidency. He took particular issue with Washington's view of the French Revolution, which Jefferson endorsed no matter how violent and amoral it became. In this context, Washington's Farewell Address can be read as a rebuke to Jefferson and his followers.
