Fans fell in love with Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton -- Alexander Hamilton's devoted wife -- in Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical phenomenon HAMILTON. In Alexander's last letter to Eliza before he died, he described her as the "best of wives, best of women." Yet Eliza remains a mystery, her story largely unknown to many.

This formidable woman comes alive across the reach of history with feelings and passions as real as our own, making the historical record a reality.
