Using the birth date for Hamilton, he would have been twenty-four in during the Battle of Yorktown.
Their awesome! To the modern mind, it's ridiculous that grown men willingly stand still and shoot at one another to settle a disagreement, but the 10 Commandments religious implications!
I had overlooked the essence of Hamilton's character.
Yes I am. Marquis de Lafayette was just 19 when he traveled to the United States.It's telling that Eliza refers again and again to Angelica's view on the crisis. He's the king, dammit, and this is his tune that he sings to. Bruh, you cheated on her sister and told the entire country about it. Burn Chills. One of the real spies who helped at Yorktown was an enslaved gentleman named James Armistead. After he was banished from the United States following the rape of his year-old stepdaughter, Croucher returned to London, where he was eventually executed for a terrible crime. Another reminder that he is too ambitious for his own good. The show ends with a bang, then a whimper, then a harmony.
Martha Washington named her feral tomcat after him! As Chernow writes"the attraction between Hamilton and Angelica was so potent and obvious that many people assumed they were lovers.
Instead, we see him as his men saw him: wise and aloof.
