Description

Jim Bach, one of New Canaan’s favorite historians, presents Alexander Hamilton—Before Broadway on Sunday, March 17th at 4:00 pm in the Lindstrom Room of the New Canaan Historical Society. With inspiration from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical, Bach blends Hamilton’s life in New York City and the tale of the tailor and spy, Hercules Mulligan, with local New Canaan Parish history.

Hamilton’s early nearby adventures closely tracked that of several other heroes that New Canaan produced, including Major Tallmadge and Sergeant William Brown. Hear about a few of George Washington’s favorite indispensable aides and one who saved his life—actually twice.

Bach may not sing or dance, but his talk is not to be missed!

Refreshments to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day will be served. The presentation is free to members and their guests, and $5 to non-members. For more information, call (203) 966-1776, or go to www.nchistory.org.

The New Canaan Historical Society is located at 13 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan, CT 06840.
