What she means:
Lin makes it very clear that Laurens wanted nothing more than freedom, freedom for everyone. Now we can assume that we're just talking freeing slaves BUT NOPE. John Laurens wanted something deeper. He wanted freedom for Alex. Through their extensive time together and detailed letters, we can assume that Hamilton explained his past to Laurens. Laurens felt as if Hamilton had never been freed of the overwhelming burden of loosing his family, his town, and happiness. Laurens could relate because he had never been freed of his fathers chains, the ones that kept him from truly making history. However when Hamilton married Eliza, he knew her money, wealth, and social status would allow Hamilton to loosen his own chains. So like Angelica sacrificing her happiness for her sisters, Laurens sacrificed himself so Alexander could regain all that he had lost, so that Ham could 'loose his chains' while the chains around Laurens only strengthened.
“We had a great time on “How to Mary a Millionaire.” Pretty Grable, who was one of the funniest, most adorable women. I was crazy about her. And Marilyn who was just sweet. There was nothing mean about Marilyn.” - Lauren Bacall (2005/ Larry King Live)

‘I am one of the world’s most self-concious people. I really have to struggle.’ - Marilyn Monroe
‘Marilyn is as near genius as any actress I ever knew. She is an artist beyond artistry. She is the most completely realised and authentic film actress since Garbo.’ - Joshua Logan
‘They tried to manufacture other Marilyn Monroes and they will undoubtedly keep trying. But it won’t work. She was an original.’ -Billy Wilder
‘In all the time I’ve known her, I’ve never heard her make one catty remark. She never criticises other actresses, and Hollywood is the capital of criticism. She has a consuming desire to be liked by everyone. It’s the most important thing in life for her.’ - Sidney Skolsky
‘There was nothing mean about Marilyn.’ - Lauren Bacall
‘She knows the world, but this knowledge has not lowered her great and benevolent dignity, its darkness has not dimmed her goodness.’ - Dame Edith Sitwell
LM shippers complaining on how the writers “threw away” LMs’ “whole development” and “all that for nothing”… Guys, seriously, untill mid-season2 there was virtually nothing going on there! No development, no “all that”… Things are just going back to normal, thank you. Now, I ask you: where was the show’s development when they made up the triangle anyway? Because that didn’t seem to be consistent to the rest of the show, to all the times Maya was rucas #1 supporter, to all the times LM glued to each other but felt nothing at all because they had absolutely nothing going on… Also, on “oh, but it means nothing, because Lauren and Cory were endgame by the end of BMW’s Ski Lodge episode”. Guys, seriously? Now you wanna talk about Ski Lodge parallels? Yeah alright… Anything can happen at anytime, of course, but, for now, these kinds of comments are cracking me up in its inconsistensies regarding past events…
