History Has Its Eyes on You: George Washington & Alexander Hamilton


Beginning Saturday, May 26, the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center will display four new Washington-Hamilton objects in the space that will highlight the vital partnership and friendship between these two founding fathers in its new temporary exhibit, "History has its eyes on you": George Washington & Alexander Hamilton. The exhibit features an engraving of Hamilton standing beside General Washington of the British surrender at Yorktown. Hamilton appears just behind George Washington, who is flanked by French and American officers. As Washington's aide, Hamilton drafted much of Washington's correspondence during the Revolutionary War. A letter from Washington, in Hamilton's handwriting, will be on view in "History has its eyes on you": George Washington & Alexander Hamilton exhibit. A condolence letter to Martha Washington from Hamilton following Washington's death will also be on view in addition to a letter from Martha to Eliza Hamilton.
