The musical sensation Hamilton debuted Off-Broadway in 2015 and continued its sold-out attendance on Broadway later that same year. In addition to 16 Tony Awards, Hamilton won a Grammy and a Pulitzer. When retired educator, Steven Freiberger, heard the music/lyrics of Hamilton, he wondered if they were based on the true story of Hamilton’s life and career or was this show simply good entertainment?
Join us, as we review the history of the American Revolution, the administration of George Washington and the role Alexander Hamilton may or may not have played. Then, Freiberger will compare the music and lyrics to check for historical accuracy.
Steven Freiberger holds a Ph.D in history and has taught at both the secondary and college level for 42 years. Mr. Freiberger currently lectures at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute [OLLI].
