Correspondence Between A. Burr and A. Ham On Display In Cooperstown

Play

Thanks to a little Broadway show, one of the most talked about founding fathers these days is Alexander Hamilton. The Fenimore Art Museum is helping encourage this interest in American history with a new exhibition, Hamilton’s Final Act, which displays the letters between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton that led to their final, fatal encounter. Chris Rossi, curator at the Fenimore, spoke with Crystal Sarakas about the exhibition. The exhibition is on display until December 31 at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, NY.
