In this new living-history program, meet the real women in Alexander Hamilton’s life: his supportive wife, Elizabeth Hamilton; her older sister, vivacious Angelica Schuyler Church; and youngest sister, high-spirited Peggy Schuyler van Rensselaer. Actress and scholar Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., brings these smart, beautiful women to life. You don’t need to have seen the musical Hamilton to enjoy this, but it will make the history behind the Tony Award-winning show come alive!

Read the books before the program!
The Hamilton Affair: A Novel by Elizabeth Cobbs
 Alex & Eliza: A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz
