The Fort Plain Museum welcomes back Hamilton Historian Michael E. Newton. Mr. Newton will discuss three of the most exciting topics to be included in his new book Discovering Hamilton.

He will also scrutinize a well-known “fact” regarding Hamilton’s wedding to Elizabeth Schuyler and will reexamine Hamilton’s involvement in the Newburgh Conspiracy. Copies of Mr. Newton’s brand-new book, Discovering Hamilton, will be available for purchase and the author will be signing copies.

Location: The Fort Plain Museum located at 389 Canal Street, Fort Plain, NY 13339.
