If you can’t score tickets for the hit Broadway show, learn all about the man who inspired the musical by reading up on the country’s first Secretary of the Treasury or by visiting a traveling exhibit at the Burlington County Library in Westampton.
“Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America,” a freestanding photo-panel exhibit, will be on display at the library from April 4 through May 6.
Using reproductions from the Gilder Lehrman Collection and the Library of the New York Historical Society, and drawing on recent scholarship about Alexander Hamilton, this display examines Hamilton’s central role during the Revolutionary War and Founding period in creating the economic, constitutional, social, journalistic, political, and foreign policy templates for modern America.
The exhibit was developed by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the New York Historical Society, and the American Library Association. The exhibit is based on the New York Historical Society’s exhibition commemorating the 200th anniversary of Hamilton’s death and the 200th anniversary of the opening of the Society in 1804.
