The Hamilton Affair: A Novel was published in August 2016 by Texas author Elizabeth Cobbs. The author is planning to visit the town where Alexander Hamilton met and courted Betsy Schuyler and be a special guest at Holly Walk on December 3 and 4.
The book tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, from passionate and tender beginnings to his fateful duel at Weehawken.
Morristown played a pivotal role in the couple’s romance so bringing Ms. Cobbs to Morristown is fitting. She will be at the Schuyler-Hamilton House on Saturday, December 3 and at the Ford Mansion at Morristown National Historical Park on Sunday, December 4.
