Join Alexander Hamilton as he makes history come alive sharing anecdotes from his days at Kings College to helping the Constitution become ratified all while pointing out what is still familiar to him in NYC.


“Our Revolutionary spirit still lives in New York. I will take you to where I drilled with Revolutionary Soldiers, where the Son’s of Liberty erected Liberty Poles, where Patriots fought the British prior to the Boston Massacre and to America’s First War Memorial. We can even still see the destruction left behind by our patriot brothers after the Reading of the Declaration of Independence.


We will discuss the important events that occurred as we stand by the site of:

  • The first US Congress
  • The first Supreme Court
  • President Washington’s Residence
  • Vice President Thomas Jefferson’s Residence
  • Thomas Jefferson’s VP and my assassin, Aaron Burr’s Law Office
  • And of course all the important places where I spent time in the area.


I would also like to share the cultural significance of 18th century life as we see the actual remains of a Colonial Prison, Water Well and Tavern from the 1600s. But most of all, I want to share some time with you.
Your Most Humble and Obedient Servant,
Alexander Hamilton”
