Alexander Hamilton's American Revolution

March 15 — September 16, 2018

Alexander Hamilton joined the American forces in the spring of 1775 at the age of eighteen, a recent immigrant from St. Croix who had quickly embraced the cause of American independence. During the Revolutionary War, Hamilton witnessed the horrors and heroism of battle as a field commander, and the challenges of maintaining a national army as the principal aide-de-camp to George Washington. As an original member of the Society of the Cincinnati and, later, its second president general, Hamilton supported his fellow veterans' mission to ensure the Revolution would not be forgotten. This exhibition explores how Hamilton's participation in the struggle for American independence helped to shape his vision for the new nation and its institutions.
