Join author Tilar Mazzeo for a brief history of the life of Eliza Hamilton, the remarkable woman behind the famous founding father. From her pioneer upbringing to her philanthropic work after Alexander’s death, Mazzeo will discuss Eliza’s contributions to the American Revolution and the founding of the Republic and how her actions reflect the agency of women at the time.
