New-York Historical Society Presents
The Many Faces Of Alexander Hamilton
Tuesday, September 26, 2006

Lecture & discussion with three Hamilton scholars

Length: 1 hr 15 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Hated by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, yet revered by George Washington, Alexander Hamilton has been a polarizing figure from his day to ours. One of the indispensable architects of the Republic, he also actively promoted partisan politics to push his own agenda. Three Hamilton scholars discuss his legacy, and consider why history has denied him the central place he occupied in his own time.

Douglas Ambrose, Sidney Wertimer, Jr., Associate Professor of History at Hamilton College and Robert W.T. Martin, Associate Professor of Government at Hamilton College, are the co-editors of The Many Faces of Alexander Hamilton: The Life and Legacy of America’s Most Elusive Founding Father. Richard Brookhiser, a Hamilton biographer, was the curator of the exhibition Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America at the New-York Historical Society.
