My granddaughter never is at a loss for creative projects. Hamilton has captured her imagination. She created hair do’s out of magic clay that fit her Lego Hamilton characters, and made them a stage. She is currently making a hotel for the Lego cast to stay in when they go to New York to perform.

My name is Alexander Hamilton.
And there’s a million things I haven’t done.
But just you wait, just you, wait.”
Hamilton was primary author of the Federalist Papers, one of the founding fathers of the United States, the founder of the nation’s financial system and first US Treasury Secretary. He worked closely with George Washington.

“Hey yo, I’m just like my country
I’m young, scrappy and hungry
And I’m not throwing away my shot”
I will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love
