Newton will talk about his latest book "Discovering Hamilton" and present several of the major discoveries he has made recently about Alexander Hamilton’s early life and his family, friends, and colleagues.

Among the discoveries is explosive new evidence about Alexander Hamilton’s birth year, which has been in debate since the early 20th century, his places of residence, religion, parents, newly-discovered relatives, and more; including legal testimonies by Alexander Hamilton, his aunt, and others. In this presentation, Newton will also touch on other subjects, such as James McHenry’s role in Hamilton’s wedding and a reexamination of the participation of Alexander Hamilton in the Newburgh Conspiracy.
