The critically acclaimed musical, “Hamilton” captured the imaginations of Americans, young and old. Now, Chaska Middle School East is offering students and parents a chance to learn more about the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and his contributions during the American Revolution and beyond. Chaska Middle School East will host The Gilder Lehrman: Institute of American History exhibit entitled “Alexander Hamilton: Immigrant, Patriot, Visionary” in the media center.

We are fortunate to be chosen as one of the few locations to host this national exhibition. The exhibit features reproductions of photos, letters, maps, notes, and more from the Gilder Lehrman Collection and the Library of the New-York Historical Society. It is expected that over 1200 students will take this opportunity to experience a part of American history and learn about the statesman and visionary, Alexander Hamilton, whose life shaped the America we live in today.
