THEODORE ROOSEVELT’S SAGAMORE HILL

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 11:00 AM
Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane
Free Admission, Co-sponsored by the Rogers Memorial Library 
Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay was Theodore Roosevelt’s favorite place on earth. Bill Bleyer, author of “Sagamore Hill,” writes that no house better reflects the personality and interests of its owner. There Roosevelt reveled in the pleasures of family life with his wife and rambunctious children and there, during his presidency he hosted political and cultural luminaries. He spent his final years happily at Sagamore Hill and after his death in 1919 the house was preserved. Historian Bill Bleyer will share the fruits of his research for the book which includes many previously unpublished photographs and presents a room-by-room guide to the house and grounds, along with a fascinating account of bygone days at Roosevelt’s haven.

WHEN CHURCH AND STATE
WERE THE STATE:
Puritans, Theocracy, and
the Origins of American Liberties 
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 11:00 AM 
Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane 
Free Admission. Co-sponsored by the Rogers Memorial Library 
 
Fr. Patrick Edwards begins with the Calvinist view of predestination which created uncertainty about achieving a place among the elect. He examines the psychological and social pressures that are the consequences of that uncertainty as well as the legacy/curse of governance and Cromwell in England. He explores and links the incidents that have had a particular impact on American polity and jurisprudence-the rise of Congregational and Presbyterian sensibilities of rebirth and regenerate life, indications of election and the ability for individuals to claim divine revelation.
