World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents Founding Fathers Series: Alexander Hamilton
More than 200 years after he was killed in a duel with the vice president of the United States, Alexander Hamilton is not just a hot ticket on Broadway, but the topic of the World Affairs Council’s next program in its Founding Fathers Series.
Hamilton is the musical version with dramatic license but the Council’s program is the historically accurate version of the story of the man who, among many other things in the young nation’s development, created the U.S. financial system and was a guiding force in the creation of the Constitution.
Yale Professor of History and American Studies Dr. Joanne B. Freeman will discuss Hamilton, his career and his enduring influence on America at the Council’s Founding Fathers Series. She is an author of several history-oriented books who also edited and produced Alexander Hamilton: Writings, one of the Atlantic Monthly’s Best Books of 2001.
