Lecture Series: In a House of Great Hospitality: Alexander Hamilton at the Dey Mansion
Sunday, July 2nd at the Dey Mansion / 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
With public interest growing in Alexander Hamilton, more people than ever are flocking to historic sites that Hamilton visited. The Dey Mansion is an official AHA Society-designated All Places Hamilton location; Alexander Hamilton stayed in the house for several months in 1780 in his capacity as an aide-de-camp to George Washington. While Hamilton was living at the Dey Mansion, he wrote to his fiancée Eliza Schuyler that he was stationed "in a house of great hospitality." On Saturday, July 2nd, in a similarly titled talk, Nicole Scholet de Villavicencio will be speaking at the Dey Mansion on Alexander Hamilton's time in the house. Come hear about the many important events that were happening at that time in both Hamilton's life and in the Revolutionary War. This talk is part of the annual CelebrateHAMILTON program (#CelebHAM) hosted by the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society every July.
