Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story
Hamilton tells the story of the life of the influential American historical figure, Alexander Hamilton. It begins with his tumultuous early life. He was born in the Caribbean, his father abandoned him and his mother died when he was 12 years old. He went to America when he was 19 and became a fierce supporter of the American movement for independence from the British crown. Hamilton joined the Continental Army and did whatever his commanders, including George Washington, asked of him. As the revolution raged on, Hamilton met Eliza Schuyler, the woman he would marry. Hamilton became an important figure in the Continental Army as it went on to win independence. As this happened, he found out that his wife was pregnant and eventually gave birth to a son. The story outlines his marriage, including his affairs, his relationship with his son and his political involvement and culminates with his infamous duel with Aaron Burr.
