Who Was Hamilton? at the New York Public Library, 2016

In August 2016, I visited the incredible New York Public Library for their #WhoWasHamilton? exhibit, where I drooled over many primary documents and genuinely had a little cry over seeing the Farewell Address. For fun, I thought it’d be cute to pair up some familiar Broadway songs to their corresponding documents. The exhibit was WONDERFUL and I ended up visiting a second time before it closed in December 2016.
