New Hamilton Discoveries to be Revealed on July 6

On Thursday, July 6, at 1:00 p.m. (to be repeated at 3:00 p.m.), I will share my recent discovery of the earliest known records of Alexander Hamilton and their implications to Hamilton’s biography. These records predate Hamilton’s letter to Edward “Ned” Stevens of November 1769 and the probate record of Hamilton’s mother from February 1768.

I’ll also be sharing a previously unknown story about Nicholas Cruger, Hamilton’s boss on St. Croix, and his “supposed duel,” which caused a “sensation” and much “disorder” on the island.

The event will take place at Liberty Hall Museum at 1003 Morris Avenue, Union, NJ 07083. A similar event last year sold out, so please reserve your seat at http://www.kean.edu/libertyhall/events/young-immigrant-hamilton-tour-july6.

If you can’t attend, the event will be live streamed on Liberty Hall’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/libertyhallmuseum/
