Highlights

This Hamilton Tour together at the southern-most tip of Manhattan, which was founded as New Amsterdam by the Dutch in 1643. Its proximity to the Hudson River was a contributing factor in the colony’s prosperity and economic growth, and it eventually became the most important port for the British Empire. Hamilton himself was born and raised in the West Indies, was orphaned at age 13, and arrived to the colonies in 1772. He quickly became involved in politics, joining the militia and later serving as Washington’s chief of staff during the war. At the present-day site of the Museum of the American Indian, we’ll explore Hamilton's immigrant identity and consider the multi-ethnic communities that were already beginning to grow and shape what would eventually become the United States.

The Revolutionary War and 1776

Walking through Battery Park and on to Bowling Green, we’ll study the political position of these parks in protecting New York into the 18th century. Here, we’ll focus on the shift from Dutch colonization to the British Empire and Hamilton’s important role in the Revolutionary War. Ever-increasing economic trade, combined with the Seven Years War and increased angst about imperial taxation, caused colonists to revolt, resulting in a series of key events such as the Second Continental Congress and Battle of Yorktown, in which Hamilton played a crucial role. We’ll discover more about Hamilton’s friendship with figures like Marquis de Lafayette and John Laurens, their influential roles in the war and their contributions to the colony’s independence from Great Britain.

Becoming the United States of America

Passing by Fraunces Tavern, a popular meeting spot for the Sons of Liberty and where Washington bid his famous farewell, we’ll look at the role of Hercules Mulligan, a friend of Hamilton’s, in serving as spy and saving Washington’s life on two occasions. Walking towards Trinity Church, we’ll consider the role of religion in the British Empire during the eighteenth century, and visit the gravesite of Hamilton, his wife Eliza, and Angelica Schuyler. Our time together will end near City Hall Park and the US Treasury, to which Hamilton was appointed Secretary, and was just one of many legacies he left during his prolific career after the war.

Kennedy was fantastic. He kept us on a very quick pace so that we could get as many shots at as many locations as possible. He was helpful through the subway system. He took fantastic photos. Highlights of the tour include the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park. Kennedy did give us various options. I will definitely be referring Kennedy to anyone I know that will be visiting New York in the future.

Taking the Hamilton Musical Tour with Chazz is a must do if you have any interest in the show. He has invested countless hours to integrate the real history of Hamilton with the show and its music. He brings together tracks from the show, fascinating
