Lyle Denniston, the National Constitution Center's adviser on constitutional literacy, looks at the revival of public shaming as a punishment, and why a Pennsylvania court nullified such a sentence for a former justice.
National Constitution Center:Aug 26, 2014From now until Constitution Day on September 17, we are sharing fun facts about the signers of the Constitution. Can you guess this Founding Father?
“I was a chaplain in the Revolutionary War but later gave up ministry life to pursue a career in law. I attended the convention as a member of the Georgia delegation, but I was originally from Connecticut. I was the last person to physically sign the Constitution because we signed as delegations, from north to south. After the convention, I helped create Georgia’s first state college, which would later become the University of Georgia.”
