(Sold Out) Hamilton: The Trolley Tour
June 11, 2016, 1:00pm–3:00pm
This event is sold out. Make sure you never miss out on tickets again! Green-Wood members get access to tickets weeks before the general public. Join today.
Hamilton is a smash hit on Broadway, and these days the man and his legacy are all the rage. Now you can get your fill of the saga at Green-Wood! Although Alexander himself rests elsewhere, many family members and those who crossed his path are interred within Green-Wood’s 478 acres. Led by Historian Jeff Richman, you’ll visit Robert Troup, Hamilton’s college roommate with whom he had a lifelong close relationship; William Peter Van Ness, who was Burr’s “second” during that fateful duel; Hamilton’s son, John, who spent years studying his father’s history; Hamilton’s grandchildren, Elizabeth and Schuyler; William Livingston, who served in the Constitutional Congress with Hamilton; 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.
$15 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$20 for non-members.
