About the Lecture
“Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton and the Development of the US Constitution – A Woman’s Perspective”
Though women were formally granted the right to vote one hundred years ago with the passage of the 19th Amendment, women had been active in politics long before then, especially behind-the-scenes. This talk explores the development and passage of the US Constitution through the personal experience of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, wife of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, and her own contributing roles.
Nicole Scholet is a researcher and speaker on Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton. Through her role as President of the Alexander Hamilton Awareness (AHA) Society, her presentations have been featured at historic sites and on C-SPAN3 American History channel. Nicole also serves as the Assistant Director of The Colonial Dames of America.
