HAMILTON is wildly popular throughout the country and among students, so why not take advantage?! In this letter, Hamilton outlines his reasons for supporting Jefferson over Burr in the Election of 1800 when it became obvious that John Adams would not win. Play the song "The Election of 1800" from the musical and then read this letter to really get your students engaged and thinking! This activity contains the letter plus 5 questions that require students to back up their answers with text. If you need a primary source for Hamilton, this is it!
