Join Carol Ward, Executive Director of the Morris-Jumel Mansion, for an illustrated lecture on Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr’s roles in the history of the site—including their presence during the Revolutionary War, George Washington’s iconic cabinet dinner and, in Burr’s case, owner of the Mansion. The program will also touch upon how the smash hit musical Hamilton has affected the museum, where Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote portions of the musical. 


The Patricia D. Klingenstein Library at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, between 76th and 77th Streets
