The Women of ‘Hamilton’

A student’s well-researched video report on the women characters in the musical ‘Hamilton’: Alexander’s wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton (Eliza), his sisters-in-law, Angelica Schuyler Church and Peggy or Margarita Schuyler Van Rensselaer. And Alexander’s paramour, Maria Reynolds. These profiles offer case studies in the roles of women in the era of America’s founding fathers.

The student improbably calls herself “That Lazy Snail.”
