Alexander Hamilton's B-day bash?

Alexander Hamilton's Bday party:
"The Museum of American Finance, in association with the Smithsonian Institution, will commemorate the 250th (or, some scholars say, 252nd) birthday of Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, with a symposium and reception on January 11, 2007. The event will be held in the Museum's new home at 48 Wall Street - appropriately the former headquarters of the Bank of New York, which Hamilton founded in 1784."
Hamilton played a very critical role in the estabilishment of the US economic prosperity. If you are in NY, it might be worth stopping by to the "symposium".

Alexander Hamilton is buried in the churchyard of historic Trinity Church. On the same day of the event at the Museum of American Finance (Jan. 11, 2007)Trinity Church is hosting a wreath-laying service at Hamilton's gravesite. This event will take place at 3 PM. The general public is invited to attend this event also.
