These intriguing trivia questions are likely to wow, whether you’re a theatergoer, a die-hard Broadway fan, or just a musical aficionado.
While many people know that Alexander Hamilton was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, they may not know some of the more interesting facts about his life. For example, did you know that Hamilton was orphaned at a young age? His father abandoned the family when Hamilton was just a baby, and his mother died when he was only eleven years old. This meant that Hamilton had to fend for himself from a very young age.
Another interesting fact about Hamilton is that he was a fierce advocate for abolition. He believed that slavery was a moral abomination and worked tirelessly to try to end the practice. He was one of the few Founding Fathers who owned no slaves.
Finally, Hamilton was known for his amazing intellect and his incredible writing ability. He was responsible for some of the most important documents in American history, including the Federalist Papers. His writing skills were so respected that even Thomas Jefferson turned to Hamilton when he needed help drafting the Declaration of Independence.
So, next time you’re impressed by a $10 bill, remember that there’s a lot more to Alexander Hamilton than meets the eye.
