Description
A Journey through the Founding of America

A richly illustrated and concise companion book to Hamilton: The Exhibition which delves into the historical events that inspired the phenomenally popular musical about Alexander Hamilton's life and the Revolutionary War era.

The Hamilton musical, says Lin-Manuel Miranda, is "a story about America then, told by America now." The phenomenally popular show has inspired a hunger for knowledge about the American Revolution and Alexander Hamilton, until recently the least-known Founding Father. The musical has also sparked curiosity among the legions of fans across the country. Hamilton: Inside the Exhibition, published as a companion to the traveling Hamilton exhibition, was created to answer their questions. In a concise and engaging approach evocative of the musical's style, Hamilton: Inside the Exhibition breaks down the fascinating and complex history around the dawn of our country.

Visually driven, the book tells the story alongside period paintings, etchings, newspaper pages, and pamphlets as well as contemporary photographs from the original cast production and the exhibition galleries, which are designed to create immersive experiences.

The text -- prepared in conjunction with two accomplished Hamilton scholars, Joanne Freeman of Yale University and Annette Gordon-Reed of Harvard University -- charts the dramatic periods of Hamilton's life: his tumultuous coming-of-age in St. Croix, the beginnings of a career in New York on the eve of the Revolution, rising through the ranks of the Continental Army, inventing a new government, and finally, his difficult relationship with Aaron Burr leading up to their fateful duel.

Adding multiple dimensions of the story that were not covered in the play, Hamilton: Inside the Exhibition brings new life to this momentous period in our history.
