Do teachers really teach about Hamilton the man outside of a very in-depth discussion about the country's early history? I think the number of school kids/teens that can name statesmen that were not president pre-Andrew Jackson is pretty low. "There's Ben Franklin, that Hamilton guy, Sam Adams has a beer named after him, uhhh...John Hancock - the Donald Trump of the era".

To your point, not exactly new, Selma sought to downplay LBJ's role a lot didn't it?

Fess Parker's Davey Crockett is also on Disney+

Probably much less factual than Hamilton.

Oh absolutely not, this has been a problem for a long time with basically any historical movie where liabilities are taken.

But to go with your example of Selma. So let's jump 5 years down the road and you poll the kids that are in the 8th-12th grade at that point, what % do you think will have seen Hamilton(and/or listened to the soundtrack) and what % do you think will have seen Selma? My guess is 60-70% will have seen or heard Hamilton and maybe 20-25% will have seen Selma.

It reminds me back when ig movies like Titanic or Saving Private Ryan came out and everyone saw those movies several times and felt like historical buffs.

I actually never watched Saving Private Ryan from beginning to the end. Usually stopped at the opening scene of Normandy landings and couldn’t continue. Watched Forest Gump many times tho.

I knew about Hamilton's efforts with the national reserve, and I knew that Burr killed him in a duel. That was it.

I also knew far more about John Jay than the musical mentioned, but other than him and Franklin yeah I don't think I can name another significant non-president until Henry Clay.

Hamilton is much more true to life than Rudy, which is almost completely fictional.

That was the very first got milk commercial, and it was directed by Michael Bay. That's insane.

Hamilton might be the only Federalist I can name other than John Adams. Supreme Court Justice John Marshall was a Federalist, but he didn't serve in Congress or was a statesman of course.

Thinking of random others that did not become president without using the benefit of the internet (not counting Burr of course, history's most famous vice president that never became president):

Daniel Webster
Elbridge Gerry (from whom we get the term gerrymander when he had a district drawn in his state of Massachusetts to ensure the election of a person from his party, the district was drawn in a political cartoon to resemble a salamander, Gerry died in office as vice president, I think for during Madison's term)
another VP that died in office, George Clinton
I think there was a Charles Pinckney although I can't tell you anything about what he did.

I have a book at home of the Constitution and writings of the era including the Federalist Papers that I want to read through at some point.

Pinkney was the Federalist candidate for president twice (lost once to Jefferson, once to Madison).
