"George to George," Shaping the Nation by our Constitution by Thomas Borcher

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
College Station, TX

Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Registration

We will discuss how the Constitution has guidelines and establishes precedents for the president to follow. Examples of these roles will be given in this program.

Mr. Borcher will cover how George Washington, using the Constitution as his guide, established the Executive Branch during the first presidency. This creation of the Executive Branch set the bar that President George H.W. Bush met throughout his presidency.

Mr. Borcher will discuss George H.W. Bush’s decisions as Commander in Chief of the Military in the Gulf War as well as his integral role in the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Working side by side with Congress, President George H.W. Bush exemplified the cooperative relationship between the different branches of government, just as President Washington intended.

Teachers are encouraged to download the event flier and complete the Pre-Program Activities with the students in advance of the program to further enrich the experience. Students who attend the event in person will be given copies of the U.S. Constitution. Teachers, if you are unable to bring your students to the program, you can still participate through www.connect2texas.net.
