Hamilton: The Trolley Tour

May 13, 2017, 11:00am1:00pm



An encore performance! History has its eyes on Green-Wood for this Hamilton filled trolley tour. Although Alexander himself rests elsewhere, many family members and those who crossed his path are interred here. Led by historian Jeff Richman, you’ll visit Robert Troup, Hamilton’s college roommate; William Peter Van Ness, who was Burr’s “second” during the fateful duel; Hamilton’s son, John Hamilton, who spent years studying his father’s history; Hamilton’s grandchildren, Elizabeth and Schuyler, and many others. You’ll also discuss the Battle of Brooklyn – fought on land that is now part of Green-Wood – and Hamilton’s role in that battle, the largest of the American Revolution.


$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for nonmembers.
