Immerse yourself in the independent militia company that started Hamilton’s military career! Meet the Hearts of Oak, a troop of Living Historians who portray the group of young volunteers that came together in colonial New-York on the eve of the American Revolution in 1775. Some members of the militia, like Hamilton, were students at King's College—known today as Columbia University! Take a close look at their distinctive green coats, listen to fife and drum music, and experience a military drill.
We’re celebrating Hamilton’s military career with Living History all weekend. On Saturday, meet Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Hamilton and learn about his victory at the Battle of Yorktown that happened on this weekend in 1781!
