Alexander Hamilton was born in the Caribbean island of Nevis (now part of the nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis) on this date over 250 years ago. Here’s a rap song about Hamilton performed by Tony award-winning In The Heights creator Lin-Manuel Miranda at the White House a few years ago. It’s pretty cool. Although he says Hamilton was born in St. Croix, not Nevis. Oops.
