FORT PLAIN — The Fort Plain Museum welcomes back Hamilton Historian Michael E. Newton at 6 p.m. July 17 at the museum, 389 Canal St., Fort Plain. Newton will discuss three of the most exciting topics to be included in his new book Discovering Hamilton. Based on newly discovered legal testimonies from St. Croix, Newton presents new evidence and conclusions regarding Alexander Hamilton’s birthdate, places of residence, religion, parents, and more. He will also scrutinize a well-known “fact” regarding Hamilton’s wedding to Elizabeth Schuyler (took place at the Schuyler Mansion in Albany) and will reexamine Hamilton’s involvement in the Newburgh Conspiracy.
Copies of Newton’s brand-new book, Discovering Hamilton, will be available for purchase for $18 and the author will be signing copies. Reserve a copy when registering. Pre-registration is required, there is a $10 admission fee. Registration can be done online, by mail or by phone, visit our website http://www.fortplainmuseum.com/events
