A series of public programs, including Chautauqua presentations and symposia, on the history and principles of the US Constitution, with emphasis on the contributions of Delaware citizens to the drafting of the document, followed by visits to the US Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Freedom's Fathers is a multi-faceted program focusing on the dramatic story behind the development of the United States Constitution. The audience participants will be mostly citizens older than 18. Of particular interest will be how the octogenarian Ben Franklin, youthful James Madison, and the battle - weary George Washington helped to shape the thinking that led to this " miracle in Philadelphia". Delaware, the state that started a nation, was represented by five delegates- John Dickinson, Gunning Bedford, George Reed, Richard Bassett and Jacob Broom.
