As part of its mission to raise awareness about Alexander Hamilton, the AHA Society hosts the annual CelebrateHAMILTON program. This series of events focusing on Alexander Hamilton is held in mid-July.
The duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr occured on July 11th, and Hamilton passed away from a resulting gunshot wound the following day. By hosting CelebrateHAMILTON around these important days, we not only remember his passing, but we also honor his life.
Where is CelebrateHAMILTON held?
Currently, New York City, northeast New Jersey, and surrounding areas host most of the events, as New York City was Hamilton's home for many years and is also where he is buried. However, each year we host events at new places (see All Places Hamilton) to raise awareness about historical sites connected to Alexander Hamilton.
What kind of events are held during CelebrateHAMILTON?
Each year's program includes a variety of events, such as walking tours, exhibits, original presentations, and historic site visits. Events that are always a part of CelebrateHAMILTON include a gathering at the Alexander Hamilton memorial in Weehawken, New Jersey on July 11th and a graveside remembrance ceremony at Alexander Hamilton's tomb at Trinity Church in New York City.
How can I support CelebrateHAMILTON?
The AHA Society makes as many of the events open and free to the public as possible - please support CelebrateHAMILTON through donations to help sustain this ambitious programming.
