“The Founding of America as seen by Alexander Hamilton” portrayed by Living Historian Scott MacScott, talks about Hamilton's life and the lives of those around him in order to convey a sense of the spirit of the American people during the nascent years of our country. This “Spirit of ‘76” can be seen in the opposing views of Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and Hamilton but also served as a unifying force guiding the differing opinions of how America should be governed and grow. Alexander will share anecdotes that will amuse people from all levels of interest in American History. There is always an opportunity to speak directly to Alexander Hamilton and learn more about the history of our great country and of this great founding father.

Madison and Hamilton reflections on the Electoral College
The method and perceived method of how we choose our President has changed greatly over the years. Alexander Hamilton famously defended the Founding Framer's Constitutional system of using Electors when he published Federalist number 68 in 1788. This system, as spelled out in Article II Section 1 of the Constitution was altered in 1804 with the ratification of the 12th amendment. Hamilton's lecture will discuss the reasons why we adopted the Elector system into the Constitution and why the majority desired to change the system only 15 years later. The video below gives a glimpse into the subject covered in this 45-60 minute address.
