LEAD 357 Fall 2014 Leadership at the American Founding (W)

Cross Listed as HIST357
No definition of "leadership" will ever prove adequate, though we know it when we see it. We obviously see it in George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King, all of whom are safely enshrined on the National Mall. Do we see it, collectively, in the revolutionary generation? What did they achieve, what did they fail to achieve, and how should we assess their legacy? These are the core questions we will address in this course. Special attention will focus on Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. Each student will be required to write a research paper rooted in primary sources on their favorite, or least favorite, Founding Father.
