Eliza: The Story of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton by Margaret McNamara, illustrated by Esme Shapiro, and with an afterword by Phillipa Soo.

Thanks to the hit Broadway musical, everyone knows the story of scrappy Alexander Hamilton and his rise in American politics – but how much do we know about his workmate, inspiration, and stabilizing force, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton? Told through letters written in the style of the time, here is the story of Eliza Hamilton, who was born into a family of considerable wealth, power, and influence in Albany, New York, in 1757. Eliza was expected to marry into a similarly powerful family…until she met and fell in love with the charismatic Hamilton. She stood by him throughout his tumultuous life, and after his death, she single-handedly collected his papers and preserved them for future generations. Eliza outlived Hamilton by fifty years; during that time she founded the first orphanage in New York State, raised funds for the Washington Monument, and kept the flame of her husband’s memory and achievements alive.

Your young patriots will be thrilled by this 18th century woman who defied convention and achieved so much. Ages 4-8. 40pp.

Signed by author, Margaret McNamara and artist, Esme Shapiro.
