    As the renowned jazz musician Jon Batiste recently wrote in The Atlantic, "There is music for everything in America—it’s an undeniable part of the fabric of everyday life…. Often [these melodies] serve as the connective tissue between generations.”

    Hear about how today’s generation is learning through music about the life of distinguished and controversial statesman Alexander Hamilton from historian Jim Ashton.

    Dr. Ashton received his doctorate in history from Johns Hopkins University, where his dissertation focused on linking patriotism and nationalist ideologies to the culture and practice of music in 19th-century America.

    This talk is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America, on view at Homewood Museum through March 11, 2018.
