The New York of George Washington and Alexander Hamilton

Founding Fathers in Lower Manhattan

With Francis Morrone

In honor of the close-together birthdays of Alexander Hamilton and George Washington, we revisit their lives in New York. We will view the sites of the toppling of the statue of George III on July 9, 1776, of the Grand Federal Procession of July 23, 1788, and of Washington’s inauguration on April 30, 1789, as the first president of the United States. We will see Alexander and Eliza Hamilton’s graves, as well as many other locations associated with the subject of what may be the greatest Broadway blockbuster in history.
