1796: America’s First Presidential Election



“1796: America’s First Presidential Election” lecture presented by Historian and Professor Gary Hylander on May 10th at 6:30 PM.

With 2016 being a presidential election year, join us as we examine the nation’s first “real” presidential election. After all, no one was going to challenge George Washington for the job. With Washington’s retirement, Federalist John Adams squared off against his former friend and Republican opponent, Thomas Jefferson.

Hylander is currently an independent scholar who specializes as a presidential historian, a pedagogical specialist for the National Endowment for the Humanities and professor of history.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.
