Celebrating our ten dollar founding father today! What is your favorite song from Hamilton?

Happy Birthday, Alexander Hamilton!

Hamilton was born #OTD in c.1755! To celebrate his birthday, we will be sending a Flat Hamilton on a journey through some of the significant sites in his life. Join us every Tuesday as we follow Hamilton and learn more about his story!

Where will Hamilton go next week? Take a guess and leave it in the comments below. Here's a hint: Hamilton will be passing through a site where, as a young man, he saw America for the first time!
