Summary: After Alexander died, he realized the existence of reincarnation. While most didn’t believe in the possibility, Alexander was one of those special few who remembered everything in their past lives. Because of this, he spent almost all of his lives searching for his dear Eliza. As his lives went on, things began to seem hopeless, all until he runs into her one day in the most unexpected place.
A/N: I’m sorry I keep updating late!! I am just so busy!!
Alexander’s hotel bed felt just a bit bigger when he woke up in the early morning. At first, he hadn’t noticed. He’d been sleeping by himself for over two-hundred years without a woman in his arms but when he couldn’t go back to sleep for no apparent reason, he realized something was missing.
[…] Richard Lupinacci, owner of the Hermitage hotel – one of the oldest buildings on the island, which Hamilton would certainly have known – said the Hamilton connection is helping Nevis, a former UK territory dominated by a single volcano and known for its rich soil and population of feral donkeys.
“People are coming to the island because they want to see the places that he knew and because they want to know more about such an extraordinary individual,” Lupinacci said.
Several hotels are now offering Hamilton-themed packages. Lupinacci’s offer includes a specially curated island history tour; a copy of Alexander Hamilton, Ron Chernow’s book that inspired the play; an afternoon at sea to view Nevis by boat; and a donation to the Graham Wyndham Foundation, the orphanage founded by Hamilton’s widow, Eliza.
According to Lupinacci, Nevis was not in fact a happy place for Hamilton. His mother, Rachel Faucette, had married a much older man, who imprisoned her on nearby St Croix when she attempted to leave him.
After her release, Faucette fled back to Nevis, where, in time, she met an itinerant Scotsman, James A Hamilton, the fourth son of a Scottish laird, who came with “no money and no luck”.
She had several children with him, including Alexander. Though divorced, she was not permitted to remarry and therefore neither she, nor her new family, were accepted in high social circles.
“That’s what Hamilton remembers,” said Lupinacci. “I’d say he was embarrassed by his time in Nevis.”
When Faucette died, her former husband claimed her property on Nevis on behalf of her legitimate son. Hamilton received nothing, and was bound to serve as an apprentice. His intelligence and abilities were soon recognized, however, and with the help of wealthy benefactors, was sent to King’s College (now Columbia University) in New York City.
I love this shot. CONSPICUOUS WATERGATE HOTEL IS CONSPICUOUS right as Captain America is about to get jumped by members of a sinister government conspiracy, after Evil Robert Redford got done telling him his apartment was bugged by the head of the very agency he works for. It’s not paranoia if they really are out to get you.
