The Alexander Hamilton Prequel: Day-by-Day With One Founding Father
Evening Lecture Presented by Barbara Chernow
The Syrett edition of the Papers of Alexander Hamilton was one of four projects to collect and edit the complete papers of the Founding Fathers that began in the 1950s. Not only did these projects establish a new standard of documentary editing, they also collectively created a more complete and human picture of the day-to-day lives of these leaders. In this lecture, Chernow will discuss the importance of Hamilton to the foundation of America, as well as the important role historical research techniques play in forming our perceptions of the past.
