Things Hamilton Doesn’t Tell You
Alexander and Eliza had 8 children. One of them was named Angelica.
Speaking of Angelica, she actually eloped with her husband to England. Maybe she did love him a little bit.
The Schuyler sisters were 3 of 14 Schuyler children, 8 who lived to adulthood. Angelica’s father did in fact have sons.
Maria Reynolds eventually divorced her husband. And get this, her attorney was Aaron Burr.
Angelica’s son Phillip worked for Alexander Hamilton as an aide-de-camp.
Once upon a time, a bunch of Tories and Native Americans broke into the Schuyler mansion, intending to seize the Schuyler sisters’ father. Everyone, including Angelica and Eliza, who were both pregnant, ran upstairs, but they forgot a baby downstairs, so Peggy went to get the baby and got confronted by the group. She scared off the group of Tories and Native Americans, but she did get a tomahawk thrown at her.
Angelica’s son named a town after her. Best mother’s day gift ever.
Eliza and Alexander adopted a two-year-old girl whose mother had died and who lived with them until she was 12 and went to go live with her sister.
Eliza lost both of her parents, Alexander, her son, and Angelica all within a 4 year period. She outlived all of her siblings except the youngest.
After Alexander died, Eliza made James Monroe apologize for his accusations of financial speculation against Alexander.
