As the hit play Hamilton continues its domination of, well, everything, the New-York Historical Society is gearing up for its own “Summer of Hamilton” with an exhibition and more set to begin July 4. The two-month-long celebration in honor of the Ten-Dollar Founding Father will take place at the Upper West Side museum every weekend through August.

The events will feature a number of historical re-enactors (including the man of the hour) as well as Hamilton’s actual desk, a portrait of him by John Trumball and other antiquities.
The “Summer of Hamilton” will also feature clips from the Broadway musical and Hamilton Fridays that will feature screenings of select films that are credited with inspiring the Broadway show.
