The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton

Hosted By: 92nd Street Y

Professor Andrew Porwancher debunks a string of myths about this founder’s origins to arrive at a startling conclusion: Hamilton was, in all likelihood, born and raised Jewish. For more than two centuries, his youth in the Caribbean has remained shrouded in mystery. Hamilton himself wanted it that way, and most biographers have simply assumed he had a Christian boyhood. With a detective’s persistence and a historian’s rigor, Porwancher upends that assumption and revolutionizes our understanding of an American icon.
