"Alexander Hamilton is the Founder who shaped our world - modern America - perhaps more than any of his contemporaries. Ric Burns's epic series for PBS, New York: A Documentary Film, tells the story of Hamilton - a man who shaped the city's and the country's foundation. To commemorate the New-York Historical Society's ambitious exhibition on Hamilton, Ric Burns and PBS are making this excerpt from New York available to educators across the country."--Container.
