What was in Eliza Schuyler Hamilton’s closet? Join us for an evening fashion presentation and panel conversation featuring the designer and seamstress Samantha McCarty, I, Eliza Hamilton author Susan Holloway Scott and Museum Education staff. Compare a gown that Elizabeth Schuyler, a native New Yorker, might have worn to meet the young officer Alexander Hamilton during his military leave in winter 1777 with how she restyled herself as Mrs. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton in the new United States capital, Philadelphia, in 1787. Guest are invited to arrive early to explore the Hamilton Was Here exhibit. Following the presentation, pose for your own portrait with similar fashions and meet author Susan Holloway Scott for a book signing featuring I, Eliza Hamilton outside the Museum store.
