I try to link (relatively) quickly to material elsewhere, but this one got away from me.
Early in March I posted a blog post on “Religion and Hamilton.” I contended that the smash Broadway hit Hamilton would be great for teaching, not only about the American Revolution in general but about religion in the American Revolution in particular.
Since I’ve published the piece, I’ve found several things:
1. The piece got mentioned on John Fea’s blog.
2. There are a lot of fans of the musical–and rightfully so!
3. The piece has resonated, which seems like a good thing for a piece about music.
So, in case you missed it, check the piece out!
