Traveling Exhibition

Alexander Hamilton Panel Exhibition

Availability

Using reproductions from New-York Historical Society and the Gilder Lehrman Collection, and drawing on scholarship about Alexander Hamilton, explore Hamilton as a statesman and visionary whose life shaped the America we live in two hundred years after his death.

Alexander Hamilton, rich in both trusted associates and staunch opponents, played a central role in creating the economic, constitutional, social, journalistic, political, and foreign policy templates for modern America. Growing up as an orphan in St. Croix, Hamilton saw America’s potential for unification through the unique perspective of an immigrant. By tracing Hamilton’s ascent in America from Kings College, to the major battles of the Revolutionary War, to his post as the inaugural Secretary of the Treasury, one can observe his growth as a patriot, journalist, economist and fervent supporter of civil liberties. Though Hamilton's dramatic death has often been considered a defining point in his legacy, his professional efforts and personal relationships in life brought about substantial change and progress. Alexander Hamilton: The Man who Made Modern America, using reproductions from the Library of the New-York Historical Society and the Gilder Lehrman Collection, and drawing on scholarship about Alexander Hamilton, bolsters our understanding of Hamilton as a statesman and visionary whose life shaped the America we live in two hundred years after his death.

This traveling panel show is composed of seven freestanding sections. It will require a total of 65–75 running feet of display space. The exhibition fee is $1,500.00, plus shipping.
