Join us on the anniversary of Alexander Hamilton's birth for a talk on his legal legacy by Dr. Kate Elizabeth Brown. In her analytical biography, Dr. Brown recasts our understanding of Hamilton’s political career, his policy achievements and his significant role in the American founding by considering him first and foremost as a preeminent lawyer who applied law and legal arguments to accomplish his statecraft.
This event will be held at the John Street Methodist Church, 44 John Street, and is presented in partnership with the Alexander Hamilton Awareness (AHA) Society.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Please note earlier start time than other events in this series.
