The Fort Plain Museum
The Fort Plain Museum welcomes back Hamilton Historian Michael E. Newton on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Mr. 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, Mr. 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 Mr. Newton’s brand-new book, Discovering Hamilton, will be available for purchase for $18 and the author will be signing copies. Please 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, please visit our website http://www.fortplainmuseum.com/events

We would like to thank our event sponsors, Alpin Haus, and Kinderhook Bank. All proceeds from this event will go towards the completion of our Research Library scheduled to open this fall.
