Now available on CSPAN3 (online): Michael E. Newton talking about “Hamilton and Washington’s Wartime Relationship”

Alexander Hamilton scholar Michael Newton and Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society Founder Rand Scholet talked about George Washington and Alexander Hamilton’s wartime relationship. Hamilton joined the Continental Army in 1776 and was appointed Washington’s aide the following year. He would later serve as President Washington’s Secretary of the Treasury. Despite the differences in their temperaments and personalities, the two men forged a long military and political partnership.

  1. The fist part of the the presentation was rich in detail. I would have been busy taking notes. The latter part was inspiring. It evoked admiration
    for Hamilton as a man of vision, great honesty and great talent. It would be difficult to estimate Hamilton’s impact on American culture, traditions and economics up to and including our times. I was impressed with Rand Scholet, others involved with the organization of the event and the audience. Great.

    • The whole thing was great. I especially liked the Q&A at the end. It was less rehearsed, more relaxed, and I think best showed the excitement we all feel towards Hamilton specifically and history in general.

  2. Michael: I saw the CSPAN3 broadcast today. You and Rand did even better on screen than you did live.
    All the best !!!!!
