Learn about the important events of Hamilton’s life and the ideas that drove him. This 2-hour talk includes about 20 substantial quotes from his writings, plus images of the life and times of the Founding Father who loved and lived in New York. Fellow fanatics will have the opportunity to help with readings and/or burst into song. The tour includes images of Hamilton’s life and times.
Comments from attendees: “Enjoyable.” “Great time!” “Very well organized, created a sense of Hamilton that I didn’t have before.” “Delightful, funny, and interesting.”
Optional: We can do the tour near one of Manhattan’s four outdoor sculptures of Manhattan, near the Grange, or indoors, if the weather isn’t cooperative or guests prefer a less strenuous tour.
How fanatical am I about Hamilton? I developed this tour in 2004, when Chernow’s book on Hamilton was published. Since I became infected with Hamilaria in early 2016, I’ve been publishing weekly posts that link the lyrics in Hamilton: An American Musical to primary documents such as Alexander Hamilton’s letters.
