Ten-Dollar Founding Father
Alexander Hamilton: The Man, the Myth, and the Musical talk
Alexander Hamilton, many of us know now, was one of America’s most important founders. But this wasn’t always how history viewed him. Many of his opponents re-wrote his story after his death, falsely portraying him as a monarchist and elitist.
On July 13, 2017 president of New York Heroes Society, Robert Begley, will present the talk Alexander Hamilton: The Man, the Myth, and the Musical at the Fairfield Museum & History Center.
Begley covers Hamilton’s turbulent childhood, work ethic, military valor, and how he rose from impoverished immigrant to American hero.
