Alexander Hamilton was one of the leading Americans who recognized the need for a strong centralized government and understood the structures that were needed to support the new Republic and allow it to grow and flourish. Hamilton's vision, probably more than that of any other Founder, is reflected in the modern America in which we now live.
This exhibition will guide visitors through Hamilton's legacy with an examination of documents Hamilton wrote and published, the institutions he shaped, and the conflicts that made him notorious in his time. Through Hamilton's words, visitors will experience this restless, prescient, practical man, whose role in the foundations of modern American was momentous and far-reaching. The exhibition will be on view at the Verona Public Library from October 22 through November 19.
