The Hamilton Affair by E. Cobbs

Wednesday • October 25 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join Main Street book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

The sweeping, tumultuous, true story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.

Hamilton was a bastard and orphan, raised in the Caribbean and desperate for legitimacy, who became one of the American Revolution's most dashing—and improbable—heroes. Admired by George Washington, scorned by Thomas Jefferson, Hamilton was a lightning rod: the most controversial leader of the new nation. Elizabeth was the wealthy, beautiful, and adventurous daughter of the respectable Schuyler clan—and a pioneering advocate for women. Together, the unlikely couple braved the dangers of war, the perils of seduction, the anguish of infidelity, and the scourge of partisanship that menaced their family and the country itself.
