    We watched HAMILTON’S AMERICA, JUNE 17 ON PBS: A 120 min look at the creation of “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical about U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton. Included: synopsis of his life and times; excerpts from the New York production with its original cast; and trips to Mount Vernon and Valley Forge with Miranda and other cast members. I have the book on order.
