Hamilton, the award-winning Broadway musical, has elevated public interest in the life and contributions of Alexander Hamilton to an all-time high. We will seek to answer the question raised in the opening lines of the musical: “How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman…grow up to be a hero and a scholar?”
The story of the life of Alexander Hamilton is one that not even the most gifted novelist could have invented. The more one looks at what happened in his 49 years,
the more improbable it seems. We will cover why many consider Hamilton the second most important of all of the “founding fathers;” second only to George Washington.
Please bring your lunch and join us at noon, or just come for the program and complimentary dessert at 12:30pm.
We’re looking forward to seeing you either way!
