What You'll Get
Our Revolutionary spirit still lives in New York. Your guide will take you to where Alexander Hamilton drilled with Revolutionary Soldiers, where the Son’s of Liberty erected Liberty Poles, where Patriots fought the British prior to the Boston Massacre, and to America’s First War Memorial. We can even still see the destruction left behind by our patriot brothers after the Reading of the Declaration of Independence.
We will discuss the important events that occurred as we stand by the site where Alexander Hamilton:
- Confiscated the canons and the fight with the British began
- Spoke about LIberty to the public for the first time
- Stopped Mob rule from offending our cause of liberty
- Dined with Washington, Adams, Knox, Jefferson and others
- Wrote the Federalist papers
- Convinced Madison and Jefferson to support the Assumption Act
- Opportunity to view the "room where it happened" at the Thomas Jefferson’s Residence
- Revisiting George Washington's inauguration as President
- Learning where the first US Congress met and what they accomplished
- Seeing where Aaron Burr worked.
- Viewing where President Washington resided and Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr’s Law Office
- Learning about all the important places where Alexander Hamilton spent time in the area.
- Learning about the cultural significance of 18th century life as we see the actual remains of a Colonial Prison, Water Well and Tavern from the 1600s.
This is a rare opportunity to learn about the creation of the United States from a man that was instrumental in its creation. Learn about the reasons behind the actions of our Revolutionary forefathers. Reinforce your knowledge concerning the events that created our great nation. Appreciate how an illegitimate boy of Scottish descent became the embodiment of the American dream as he demonstrated foresight, wit, courage, and intellect throughout his life. Hamilton, more than any other person, demonstrated the American self-determination that not only determined his fate but that of the country he helped create. You will have an opportunity to ask questions to Alexander Hamilton throughout and at the end of the tour. The best teacher of history is one who has lived it. Your guide is a native New Yorker and a professional Colonial reenactor featured in numerous movies and educational publications.
