American History Lesson from Hamilton the Musical

I love this kid  ❤️

Plus she got every question correct *just* from her knowledge of the lyrics, for example:

  1. Where did Thomas Jefferson live? Monticello. In Virginia.
  2. Who was the English Monarch addressed in the Declaration of Independence? King George III
  3. Name 3 soldiers who fought in the Continental Army. Alexander Hamilton, Marquis de Lafayette and…oh yeah, George Washington.
  4. What was the final battle of the Revolutionary War? Yorktown.
  5. BONUS: After the Americans won at Yorktown, everyone was singing the drinking song :”The World Turned Upside Down”.
