Description

The history of Hamilton and several Founding Father's New York holds many stories. As one of the oldest European-founded cities in North America, it is a great place to see important places for revolutionary American history. A former base of the British in the New World, it became the headquarters of the Crown Forces in the Revolutionary War. Avid musical fans will recall that New York City was also the capital of the nascent USA before it "was traded down the river" by Alexander Hamilton in a shrewd negotiation with James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. Journey with your guide through history to see places where, if events had turned out differently, the USA you know today would not exist (dare we mention "the room where it - may have -happened").

* See George Washington’s pew in **St Paul’s Chapel**
