The Fort Plain Museum is set to welcome back Hamilton Historian Michael E. Newton on Wednesday, July 17, to discuss three of the most interesting topics from his new book Discovering Hamilton (Eleftheria Publishing, 2019).
Based on newly discovered legal testimonies from St. Croix, Newton presents new evidence and conclusions regarding Alexander Hamilton’s birthdate, places of residence, religion, parents, and more. He will also scrutinize a well-known “fact” regarding Hamilton’s wedding to Elizabeth Schuyler (which took place at the Schuyler Mansion in Albany) and will reexamine Hamilton’s involvement in the Newburgh Conspiracy.
Copies of Newton’s new book, Discovering Hamilton, will be available for purchase for $18 and the author will be signing copies. Reserve a copy when registering. Pre-registration is required, there is a $10 admission fee. Registration can be done online, by mail or by phone.
The event starts at 6 pm and will be at the Fort Plain Museum located at 389 Canal Street in Fort Plain. For more information, call (518) 774-5669.
