The name Alexander Hamilton used to be literally unknown. But now, in 2016, Lin-Manuel Miranda told America the story of Hamilton, the hero of America.
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical and Broadway show, Hamilton, touched the hearts of many in our nation to really know who Alexander Hamilton was and how he lived a life and changed history. I listen to the Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songs, and what I thought when I listened to the music for the first time was “How could our nation, America, forget Alexander Hamilton?”. Lin-Manuel Miranda had that thought when he read a book on vacation on Hamilton, and he was inspired to write the musical, Hamilton.
Alexander Hamilton was born sometime between 1755 and 1757 and died on July 12, 1804. He was born in the Caribbean, and later immigrated to the USA. He attended King’s College and later married Elizabeth Schuyler. His death cause was of a mortal wound that he got when Aaron Burr shot him.
