Join Dr. Andrew Porwancher, Wick Cary Associate Professor at the University of Oklahoma, and author of The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton, as he debunks a string of myths about the origins of this founding father to arrive at a startling conclusion: Hamilton, in all likelihood, was born and raised Jewish. Uncovering the truth about Hamilton is critical to understanding why he came to champion the cause of American Jewry in the new nation he fought to create.
