Show Notes

What can we learn from the life and legacy of John Witherspoon, an influential figure in American history who left an indelible mark on the education system and the formation of our nation? In this Sacred Honor series episode, we also delve into Witherspoon's role as a delegate to the Second Continental Congress and the only clergyman to sign the document. Learn about the impact of this incredible leader on the growth of the College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton University) and how his teachings on natural law, separation of powers, and checks and balances inspired students like James Madison.
