hamilton-talk-collage_edited-1

On Sunday November 6, 2016, at 1 p.m., I’ll be giving my talk “Hamilton: Man & Musical.” Learn about the important events of Hamilton’s life and the ideas that drove him, via excerpts from his writings and a slideshow of images from his life and times. Fellow fanatics will have the chance to help read the excerpts and/or burst into song.

Sign up early to read your choice of excerpts

In my weekly blog posts on Hamilton, I rely heavily on primary sources, including Hamilton’s own writings. “Hamilton: Man & Musical” includes about 20 substantial excerpts from Hamilton’s writings (100-200 words) that volunteers can read aloud. Sign up in advance and you’ll get best chance at reading Hamilton’s words on the topic of your choice: Ambition, the Hurricane Letter, Great Britain, Trade, Liberty vs. anarchy, Swooning death wish, Philip, Articles of Confederation, Neutrality, Judiciary, Bill of Rights, War I.O.U.s, Implied powers, French Revolution, Jefferson, Adams, Burr, Dueling, and (bonus) Washington on Hamilton.
