Back Announcing: The Spring 2016 Hamilton Tickets Giveaway
Official Hamilton poster

When Lin-Manuel Miranda was writing his Broadway phenomenon Hamilton, one of the books he kept by his side was the authoritative edition of Hamilton’s writing published by Library of America—Alexander Hamilton: Writings, edited by Yale historian Joanne B. Freeman.

“Joanne Freeman’s collection of Hamilton’s writing was sort of my touchstone,” Miranda told The Atlantic last fall. “Any time I was in the wilderness, I could go back to what Hamilton wrote and kind of figure it out from there.”

With Hamilton’s words as inspiration, Miranda brought to life a story from America’s past and made it resonate for today’s audiences.
