MUSICAL U.S. HISTORY: HAMILTON AND 1776

25.00

CLASS FEE: $350
(Your $25 application fee will be applied to your first payment.)

This history class will explore the early years of American history (roughly 1770 - 1800) as portrayed in the popular Broadway musicals 1776 and Hamilton.  We will talk about the actual history behind the entertainment, and how it relates to what's going on in our world today. Students will gain a greater understanding of the historical events that led up to the American Revolution and how our country was formed in the early years post-Revolution, learn more about our Founding Fathers and the beliefs that caused them to fight for independence, and explore both sides of key political and philosophical questions of the period (strong federal government vs. states' rights, wealthy investors vs. the 'ordinary citizen', intervention vs. isolation) that still inform political debate today.
