Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America

Implementation of the national tour of a panel exhibition, website, catalog, and public programs interpreting Alexander Hamilton's role in the creation of American government and culture.

The New-York Historical Society, Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and American Library Association propose to organize and tour nationally to 40 libraries the panel exhibition "Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America." Using reproductions from the N-YHS’s and GLI’s renowned collections and drawing on recent scholarship, this interpretive product based on a major exhibition at the N-YHS (8/04-2/05) will examine Alexander Hamilton’s central role, during the Revolutionary and Founding period (1774-1804), in creating the economic, constitutional, social, journalistic, political, and foreign policy templates for modern America. The project will span 9/1/04 through 8/31/07; the two panel exhibitions will open in 10/05.
