HAMILTON: THE TROLLEY TOUR
Sep 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $25.00
Hamilton is a smash hit on Broadway, and these days the man and his legacy are all the rage. Now you can get your fill of the saga at Green-Wood! Although Alexander Hamilton himself rests elsewhere, many family members and those who crossed his path are interred within Green-Wood’s 478 acres. Led by Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, you’ll visit Robert Troup, Hamilton’s college roommate with whom he had a lifelong close relationship; William Peter Van Ness, who was Aaron Burr’s “second” during that fateful duel in which Hamilton was slain; Hamilton’s son, John; Hamilton’s grandchildren, Elizabeth and Schuyler; William Livingston, who served in the Constitutional Congress with Hamilton; and many others. You’ll also learn about Hamilton’s role in the Battle of Brooklyn – fought on land that is now part of Green-Wood. Reservations are recommended. If the trolley tour is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
