CONSTITUTION PROGRAM

Scott F. Griffith presented a program on the U.S. Constitution to 50 students and several teachers from Philadelphia’s Holy Cross Parish School on May 25, 2011. The Constitution Program was held at Laurel Hill Mansion, the restored summer home of the Rawle family on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. The event was hosted by the Women for Greater Philadelphia (www.womenforgreaterphiladelphia.org), stewards of Laurel Hill Mansion. The mansion is owned and maintained as a historic landmark.

Scott began with a discussion about the Constitution. He spoke about William Rawle, who founded Rawle & Henderson in 1783. He described Rawle’s family and detailed his role in the early Republic. Scott looked at the Constitution from a historical perspective and covered key topics such as: the need for the first ten amendments to the Constitution; religion and government; freedom of speech and the press; the legal system and lawyers; and the right to keep and bear arms.  In addition, Scott discussed some current issues and cases relating to the Bill of Rights, particularly the first two amendments.

The program was enthusiastically received, and students and adult attendees indicated they were very appreciative for the knowledge they gained.
