CWW: American Founding Fathers and the Classics

July 6, 2016 – It’s Classical Wisdom Wednesday, presented by Classical Wisdom Weekly — bringing ancient wisdom to modern minds, every Wednesday morning before your first cup of coffee.

You might not believe it, but if it weren’t for Cicero, the United States might never have broken away from England. And if it weren’t for the philosopher, Epicurus,  it is possible that Thomas Jefferson might never have put ink to parchment and penned the words, “…that all men are created equal.” That’s right, dear listener, we are going to find out just how the classics inspired the creation of America.

Your guide through the classical landscape is Van Bryan, Associate Editor of Classical Wisdom Weekly. You can catch Classical Wisdom Wednesday every week before your first cup of coffee, right here on the History Author Show.
