You've listened to the musical, now put some names to places with this pop-up exhibit of maps related to Alexander Hamilton's life and exploits. This month's Maps and More collections show-and-tell event is offered in coordination with the On the Same Page program. Featuring maps and atlases from the Earth Sciences & Map Library collection, this exhibit helps put some geographic context to key events in Hamilton, from his birth in the West Indies to his years in Philadelphia and New York and his deadly duel on the banks of the Hudson.

History graduate student Nicole Viglini is guest curating this pop-up exhibit and will provide a short commentary to orient visitors.
