Join Alexander Hamilton on an immersive journey through Colonial New York. Walk downtown Manhattan as he makes history come alive sharing anecdotes from his days at Kings College to helping the Constitution become ratified all while pointing out what is still familiar to him in NYC. "Our Revolutionary spirit still lives in New York. I will take you to where I drilled with Revolutionary Soldiers, where the Son’s of Liberty erected Liberty Poles, where Patriots fought the British prior to the Boston Massacre and to America’s First War Memorial. We can even still see the destruction left behind by our patriot brothers after the Reading of the Declaration of Independence." We will discuss the important events that occurred as we stand by the site of: The first US Congress The first Supreme Court President Washington’s Residence Vice President Thomas Jefferson’s Residence Thomas Jefferson’s VP and my assassin, Aaron Burr’s Law Office And of course, all the important places where I spent time in the area. This is an opportunity to learn about the creation of the United States from a man that was instrumental in its creation. Learn about the reasons behind the actions of our Revolutionary forefathers. Reinforce your knowledge concerning the events that created our great nation. Appreciate how an illegitimate boy of Scottish descent became the embodiment of the American dream as he demonstrated foresight, wit, courage, and intellect throughout his life. Hamilton, more than any other person, demonstrated the American self-determination that not only determined his fate but that of the country he helped create. You will have an opportunity to ask questions to Alexander Hamilton throughout and at the end of the tour. What to expect? Meet your guide and group outside of City Hall 10 minutes before your chosen tour time. You'll recognize your guide as one of the founding fathers of the country, Alexander Hamilton. Your guide is a native New Yorker and professional colonial reenactor, who will stay in character throughout your walking tour of colonial New York.

As you walk, you'll be able to travel back in time through your guide's commentary. See America's First War Memorial, where Alexander Hamilton drilled with Revolutionary Soldiers, where the Sons of Liberty erected Liberty Poles, and where Patriots fought the British prior to the Boston Massacre Headsets are provided so you can hear your guide clearly, and you'll have plenty of time to ask questions during and after the tour.
