When I first decided to write about the famous Broadway show Hamilton, I was scared. And clueless. Because it is impossible to write about something so beautiful. You will not understand how brilliant the play is until and unless you watch it yourself. The actors, the set, the production, everything was amazing, spectacular, you name it! Dollar
The play is about one of America’s founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton. But it is so much more than that. It is a play about the American Revolution and it is a play about change.
Born out of wedlock in West Indies, Alexander Hamilton’s early life was tumultuous, to say the least. Abandoned by his father at a very early age and left alone in this world when his mother died, he made his way through the American colonies at the age of nineteen. Dollar
In New York, Hamilton started to prepare himself for college. There he also acquainted with some fellow revolutionaries – John Laurens, Marquis De Lafayette, Hercules Mulligan and Aaron Burr. Hamilton eventually enrolled in King’s College (now known as Columbia), but ultimately had to withdraw and join a local militia to fight in the American Revolution against the British. Dollar
During the American revolutionary war, Hamilton was Washington’s secretary. Even though he had the best job at the war, which was writing, doing correspondences for Washington( which is what he was good at), Hamilton wanted to have his command. He wanted to fight because he knew he didn’t have money, he didn’t have a family and the only way he could rise in the society is by gaining military glory.
