The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society is sponsoring an action-packed series of events in New York City and Northern New Jersey from July 11-14. If you are in the area, make sure you catch some great events, including author talks, guided tours, and special exhibits with Hamilton artifacts. I will be visiting New York and attending several of the events.
Here are a few highlight events:
July 11, 5:30-7 pm: Hamilton vs. Jefferson Debate at the Museum of American Finance
National Hamilton Scholar Dr. William G. Chrystal will become Alexander Hamilton for the evening to both entertain and educate attendees in a “debate” with Thomas Jefferson. After the presentation, a Q&A session will be held, followed by a reception. Register here for this free event.
Meet beside Alexander Hamilton’s grave in the Trinity churchyard for a brief remembrance service. Historian Thomas Fleming will speak on “Alexander Hamilton: Realist and Visionary.”
July 13, 10 am-12 pm: Presentation at Hamilton Grange
AHA Society Founder Rand Scholet will be giving his presentation on “America’s Indispensable Founder.” Other activities planned for the day include house tours and a reenactment reading of the final letters exchanged between Burr and Hamilton.
