Follow Alexander Hamilton’s narrative and immerse yourself in the Revolutionary discourse that inspired the songs you know and love. With the America’s Historic Triangle ticket, you can experience the birth of the nation, from arrival of the first settlers in Jamestown to revelations of revolution in Williamsburg to the world turning upside down at Yorktown. Don’t throw away your shot to travel to a place and time where the country is young, scrappy, and hungry.

Visit the Capitol, where a British governor still reigns, and Virginia’s representatives are struggling over the meaning of American liberty.
Then, see the kindling of Revolution at R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse, where the Stamp Act is the news of the day and, like Hamilton and his friends, the colonists are frustrated and beginning to “dream of life without a monarchy.”
Plus, check out the Raleigh tavern, where radical members of the House of Burgesses members met to oppose the British; you could say the tavern’s Apollo Room was a “room where it happened.”
Two interpreters portraying George Washington present the legendary man at two points in his life: as a young Colonel and a distinguished General. Listen as the two reflect on the experiences that shaped Washington across two wars — how he adapted, changed, and grew as he progressed from Colonel to General.
You can learn a lot about a person from the things they own. Discover what you can learn about George Washington from objects associated with or owned by him.
Nation Builders portray real historic figures associated with 18th-century Williamsburg who made significant contributions to the American story. Meet a Nation Builder during your visit who helped shape their time, and whose legacy continues to influence and inspire American ideals.
In 1771, Alexander Hamilton’s inventory included two jugs decorated with the this “No Stamp Act” motif, likely bequeathed to him by his benefactor, James Brown. Today the only known surviving “No Stamp Act” ceramics are teapots, and we have one in our collection, currently on display in the exhibition Revolution in Taste. Plus, after you study the piece at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, you can get your own No Stamp Act teapot ornament, coaster, or mug at Colonial Williamsburg stores or online to commemorate your Hamilton-themed trip.
