The Fargo Public Library will host Alexander Hamilton: Immigrant, Patriot, Visionary, a traveling exhibit honoring the statesman, scholar and former Secretary of the Treasury, which will be on display at the downtown Main Library March 31 to April 28, 2021. Developed by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and made possible by the Rockefeller Foundation, the exhibit examines Hamilton’s role during the Revolutionary War and Founding period (1774-1804) in creating the economic, constitutional, social, journalistic, political and foreign policy templates for modern America. Visitors will be become familiar with Hamilton who was a statesman and visionary whose life inspired discussion and controversy and shaped the America we live in 200 years after his death. Colonial era information and themed craft packets will be available for children in the Children’s Area at the Main Library (while supplies last) as part of the exhibit.
