Event description

Description

Discover the intriguing life, accomplishments, and legacy of America’s most dynamic and controversial founding father, Alexander Hamilton.

From the obscure island of Nevis in the Caribbean, to the most famous island in the world—Manhattan—Hamilton’s meteoric rise to the world stage is the story of the nation he created and the city he shaped in his own image.

This "walking lecture" tour tells Hamilton's story with an intimate look into the life of the man himself, and the incredible work he achieved in his brief lifetime.

Alexander Hamilton's years in Harlem influenced him dramatically, yet also transformed forever Harlem itself as a community. Beginning with his outstanding military resilience in the face of insurmountable odds, through his last years of his life reeling from unimaginable personal loss and political expulsion, Alexander and Elizabeth both left their impression and spirits enshrined in the progression of the community.

We will visit Morris-Jumel Mansion, uncovering the wealth of history the house has to offer and explore the early years of Hamilton's life. From the mansion we will walk from Washington Heights to Hamilton Heights, discovering the Sugar Hill section and examining the neighborhood during Hamilton's time, and today. Finally the tour will visit Hamilton Grange, the only home Alexander Hamilton ever owned. Here we will discuss Hamilton's tireless work after the war, his bitter battles with the other founders and the many victories he achieved as well as the groundswell of events leading up to the fateful "Interview in Weehawken".
