In honor of Independence Day this week we will feature one Tipping Point New Mexico podcast. But, we are thrilled to have Bradley Birzer, an American History professor at Hillsdale College on this week. Dr. Birzer and Paul discuss various well-known and more obscure figures in the Founding of America and some of the great accomplishments of the Founding. Dr. Birzer has a book about Andrew Jackson and the two discuss Jackson and his legacy.
Finally, given all the tearing down of monuments happening in America right now Paul and Dr. Birzer discuss the evolving judgments of important figures in American history from the Founding through Jackson and to the Confederacy on issues relating to slavery as well as Native Americans.
Birzer publishes regularly at The Imaginative Conservative.
