IN THIS SECOND EPISODE OF OUR SERIES, JOHNNY REB AND BILLY YANK WILL DISCUSS THE DIFFICULTY THAT THE NEW UNITED STATES WENT THROUGH IN TURNING THE CONSTITUTION AND ITS BILL OF RIGHTS INTO A WORKING GOVERNMENT.  MANY PITFALLS WERE PRESENT AND THERE WAS MUCH DIVISION, BUT AMERICA MANAGED TO WORK ITS WAY THROUGH INTO AN EFFECTIVE BLEND OF IDEAS WHICH CAME TO WORK.

WE WILL BLEND A LITTLE HUMOR WITH SOME HISTORY AS WE DETAIL SOME OF THE CRITICAL ISSUES OF THE TIMES, MANY OF WHICH CONTINUE ON TODAY. INCLUDED ARE:

OPERATING THE NEW GOVERNMENT UNDER AN EXECUTIVE WITH A LEGISLATURE AND JUDICIARY OF CO-EQUAL AUTHORITY.

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NATIONAL BANK AND CREDIT.

CUSTOMS, DUTIES AND EXCISE TAXES (INCLUDING THE WHISKEY REBELLION IN PROTEST)

THE ONGOING BATTLE OF WILL BETWEEN THOMAS JEFFERSON AND ALEXANDER HAMILTON.

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES (JUDICIARY ACT)

CONTINUED OPPOSITION AND TROUBLE WITH BRITAIN.

AMERICA AND THE FRENCH REVOLUTION

AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.

WE WILL RELATE MANY OF THE ISSUES AND PROBLEMS FOUND THEN WITH PROBLEMS TODAY, A PRIME MEASURE OF HOW HISTORY DOES INDEED REPEAT ITSELF.

HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US. I PROMISE NOT TO GET IN A DUEL WITH BILLY YANK. SHOW STARTS PROMPTLY AT 9:02 WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
