With the success of the hit musical Hamilton, this tour was designed to help people understand how an illegitimate immigrant finds his way to New York, remakes himself, and becomes one of our most brilliant, charismatic, and controversial founding fathers!
Turn around and take ten paces back in time to the infamous duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Before he was honorably shot down, Hamilton had served as the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and succeeded George Washington as Senior Officer of the United States Army. And, Hamilton’s Historical Happy Hour traces both his personal and professional life on a fun-filled walk through Manhattan!
Visit Trinity Church, Hamilton’s final resting place. Check out the New York Stock Exchange, which is the ultimate result of Hamilton’s financial framework. See Federal Hall, where he watched George Washington swear in as the first president of the United States. And, most importantly, have a pint at the bar where he and George Washington would discuss the future direction of a budding nation-state…over a frosty mug of suds, of course! If you’re a lover of American history, then Hamilton’s Historical Happy Hour is one of the best things to do in New York!
