    On May 15, 2003, David McCullough presented "The Course of Human Events" as The 2003 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities in Washington, DC. The Jefferson Lecture is a tribute to McCullough's lifetime investigation of history.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Course of Human Events again? Why?

    I would listen again to this performance because it is inspiring, especially if you love American history or are a family historian.


    What other book might you compare The Course of Human Events to and why?

    This book is comparable to another book by McCullough; 1776.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is only one scene. McCullough captures the historical essence of a famous painting which depicts the signing of the Declaration of Independence.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was left with deep feelings of patriotism and reverence for the individuals who made great personal sacrifices before, during and after the Revolution.
