Events Honoring Alexander Hamilton and the Publication of ‘Alexander Hamilton: The Formative Years’

Starting tomorrow (July 10), there will be four days of events honoring the life of Alexander Hamilton. This weekend was chosen because it is the anniversary of Hamilton’s famous duel with Aaron Burr (July 11), his untimely death (July 12), and his funeral (July 13). This year’s events are extra special because Lin Manuel-Miranda’s HAMILTON musical opens on Broadway on July 13 and because my new book, Alexander Hamilton: The Formative Years, was published earlier this month.

A complete list of events can be viewed as an e-flyer here or as a one-page printable flyer here. I would like to highlight the events pertaining to me and my new book.
