South Carolina’s Constitution Day Celebration with James Otis Scholars
Monday - October 10, 2011
South Carolina's Role in Drafting the United States Constitution was the topic of a mid-September celebration of Constitution Day. The Third Annual James Otis Lecture, attended by over 150 high school students who had been designated as "James Otis Scholars," was held in the State House and sponsored by the South Carolina Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. The program featured addresses identifying James Otis, celebrating Constitution Day and reflections on the Constitutional Convention of 1787. These speeches make up a great podcast designed to reacquaint listeners with the people and events that shaped our nation and to promote interest in futute Constitution Day celebrations.
