October Virtual Book Club

October 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the AHA Society for its fourth annual Fall Virtual Book Club program this fall, with featured books each month for October, November, and December. Book Club sessions this year will feature authors themselves answering attendee questions! Kickstarting the 2023 Season of the Alexander Hamilton Virtual Book Club will be The Great New York Fire of 1776: A Lost Story of the American Revolution by Benjamin L. Carp.

New York City, the strategic center of the Revolutionary War, was the most important place in North America in 1776. That summer, an unruly rebel army under George Washington repeatedly threatened to burn the city rather than let the British take it. Shortly after the Crown’s forces took New York City, much of it mysteriously burned to the ground.
This is the first book to fully explore the Great Fire of 1776 and why its origins remained a mystery even after the British investigated it in 1776 and 1783. Uncovering stories of espionage, terror, and radicalism, Benjamin L. Carp paints a vivid picture of the chaos, passions, and unresolved tragedies that define a historical moment we usually associate with “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
