“Not Throwing Away My Shot:” A Virtual Hamilton History Trip

June 15, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Virtually visit the “House Where It Happened” and discover the real history of Alexander Hamilton’s and Aaron Burr’s relationship.

Virtually visit the “House Where It Happened” and discover the real history of Alexander Hamilton’s and Aaron Burr’s relationship and their connection with Manhattan’s oldest surviving house, Morris-Jumel Mansion. We will explore Lin-Manuel Miranda’s visit to the Mansion as artistic inspiration for the hit musical Hamilton, and use one of its songs, “My Shot,” as a writing reflection prompt to share about our hopes for the future.

Presenters: Megan Lynch and Julia Butterfield, Morris-Jumel Mansion Educators

This program is intended for Young Adults. Closed captioning will be available.
