Exploring Hamilton’s New York: Lecture and Book Signing

Where: The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society

170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

When: Friday, July 29, 2016, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Details: New York is overflowing with stories of Alexander Hamilton’s life—but where can we find them? Using the Hamilton chapter in their book Footprints in New York as a starting point, authors James and Michelle Nevius search out the remnants of Hamilton’s New York—from King’s College (now Columbia University), where he enrolled as a teenager; to Wall Street, where he lived and worked; to Thomas Jefferson’s “Room Where It Happened,” where he gave up Manhattan as the American seat of government in exchange for advancing his economic program. Follow in Hamilton’s footsteps during the last weeks of his life, from Fraunces Tavern to Hamilton Grange to the fateful Weehawken dueling grounds! Contemporary photos, historic maps, and images of objects from the New-York Historical Society’s collections will illustrate the journey.

Cost: Free with Museum Admission, RSVP to 212-485-9268.
