St. Mary’s was excited to welcome actors from the Durham Museum who presented “Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton: Conflict and the Constitution” at an assembly for grades four through eight. This glimpse of the full performance examined the need for balance between State’s rights and a centralized government while giving the audience a taste of what the negotiations were really like. Throughout this presentation, students witnessed how the relationships between key figures, and the need for compromise, between two opposing factions resulted in the development of the imperfect, but ever evolving, government we have today.
