Attentional all Hamilton fans and new people in the history fandom (If you can call it a fandom tbh that kinda weirds me out) ! I have some recommendations for you to check out this Independence Day!!

1776:

Want to know where Lin go the line “Sit down John, you fat motherf*&%$!” well look no further! This is THE movie for you all to watch. Seriously it’s amazing. If you like Hamilton then PLEASE watch this. It’s a musical. It’s about the founding fathers. It’s about the writing of the declaration (and John Adams fighting literally everyone). Jefferson is gorgeous. Franklin’s a little shit. Adams is the smol one fighting everyone. It’s perfect. I mean look at this:

Drunk History:

Specifically these episodes: John Adams vs Thomas Jefferson , Baron von Steuben , the Defection of Benedict Arnold , and of course Alexander Hamilton


Thomas Jefferson the Musical:

Just what it says. It’s short, about 10 mins, but it’s funny and the songs are catchy. Also, super secret slumber party.

Felicity An American Girl Adventure:

Look its a fun adventure about a girl growing up in Williamsburg during the American Revolution. It’s a fantastic movie and covers a lot of issues during the day. Just watch it and trust me. Yes that is Shailene Woodley.

The Revolution:

This one is on the History Channel but I really love it, it’s amazing. Its a multi piece documentary on the American Revolution and it’s my favorite. 

Liberty Kids:

The American Revolutionary War is seen through the eyes of an American teenaged lad, a young English lady, and a French boy, all 3 of whom work as reporters for Benjamin Franklin. Its fun and educational!

TURN Washington Spies:

Not the most accurate but its very exciting and is about spies.

John Adams HBO miniseries:

Do I even need to say anything.

“My apologies to Damien Chazelle, but this year’s real masterpiece of musical daring was blazed into existence by who else but Beyoncé. And I’m not even talking about Lemonade, a work of such sumptuous cinematic beauty that Parkwood should have skipped right over HBO and went straight to IMAX. Still, Melina Matsouaks’ video for ‘Formation’ galvanizes me very nearly as much, never more so than when it cuts to The Single Most Important Artist of the 21st Century sitting and standing atop that New Orleans cop car: posing, reclining, and raising her first in a confident spectacle of righteous defiance. On a level not unlike watching Isabelle Huppert singlehandedly provide Elle with a reason for being, watching Beyoncé in ‘Formation’ is to fully understand what it means to be in complete control of one’s image, to know one’s strengths and possess the otherworldly ability to transmit all of them as artist and auteur. And activist.” — Matthew Eng

Looking for a boost after “Daddy Issues”? The Grimes & Bleachers track that ends the episode has “a feel-good vibe that really plays against a moment where Ray and Hannah feel at their lowest,” explains music supervisor Manish Raval. “It’s a kind of pick-me-up for the viewer.”

Dreams really can come true—at least when it comes to the Girls soundtrack. “Lena had played an earlier version for us ages ago,” he remembers. “We all loved it and just said, ‘As soon as it’s done, we hope we can hear it and use it in the show!’”
