Special Lecture ~ Discovering Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton

Evening Lecture presented by Michael Newton

For over two centuries, Alexander Hamilton’s birth, youth, and family background have been shrouded in mystery. In this lecture, Newton will discuss his extensive research into the lives of Hamilton, his friends, family, and colleagues. Based on newly discovered legal testimonies from St. Croix, Newton explores the lingering questions of Hamilton’s birth date, places of residence, religion, parents, and more.  

Doors open at 6:00pm and close for entry at 6:50pm.
