Fort Worth area teachers: Amon Carter Museum workshop on art from the Gilded Age


From the Amon Carter Museum education department (in Fort Worth):

    Just for the Republicans on this blog:

    I hope we shall . . . crush in [its] birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations.” Thomas Jefferson

    “When economic power… became concentrated in a few hands, then political power flowed to those possessors and away from the citizens, ultimately resulting in an oligarchy or tyranny.” John Adams

    “As riches increase and accumulate in few hands . . . the tendency of things will be to depart from the republican standard.” Alexander Hamilton
