Okay, sorry for the few months that I haven’t posted anything. Due to technical issues with iMovie, I wasn’t able to upload any videos, but I’ve finally solved that problem! 🙂 So, first I want to share with you a fantastic musical that I have fallen in love with. It is entitled Hamilton, and this broadway musical is about the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. The man was an incredible writer, modest genius, and completely ambitious. He wrote himself out of poverty in the Caribbean after his father left and his mother died. Complete strangers moved to kindness through his miserable situation took up a donation and raised enough money to send him to New York City. There, Alexander meets Aaron Burr and a few others who support the revolution against Britain, and from then on his life becomes a commitment to the nation of America. I definitely recommend it to anyone, whether they love history or not.
While I was listening to one of the songs on the soundtrack, I had the idea to make a video of it (Oh, really?!) and to portray the characters as they actually looked like when they lived. Above you can see some of the characters in the musical, and all of them actually lived and died during the revolutionary era of America. Of course they didn’t actually look like they did above, they looked WAY different. And so, I was able to make a historically accurate video of one of the songs in the musical; (the song is entitled “Aaron Burr, Sir” and it takes place right after Alexander Hamilton arrives in New York City. The year is 1776) I found and used images of what Marquis de Lafayette, Hercules Mulligan, John Laurens, and Alexander Hamilton really looked like.
