Try That Dish Potluck
Event Details
Date(s): March 21, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM  EST - 3:00 PM  EST
We’re going to have a “try that dish” pot luck lunch on March 21 at noon, at the Schoolhouse.  Many of us have a stack of recipes that we’ve cut from magazines or saved from emails, but we just haven’t had the right chance to
try the recipe. This is going to be our chance. Make that recipe and bring it to the schoolhouse.

Please bring a copy of your recipe. We’re going to display these, and if somebody wants your recipe, they’ll be asked to sign their name to your copy so that you can forward it to them.

Please bring dishes ready to serve, and remember to bring a serving utensil also. Don’t worry if, after you make your recipe, you think it’s a flop- bring it anyway. Try your recipe and enjoy lunch with us! It’s a win-win.

Building on biographies by Richard Brookhiser and Willard Sterne Randall, Ron Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton provides what may be the most comprehensive modern examination of the often overlooked Founding Father. From the start, Chernow argues that Hamilton’s premature death at age 49 left his record to be reinterpreted and even re-written by his more long-lived enemies, among them: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and James Monroe. Hamilton’s achievements as first Secretary of the Treasury, co-author of The Federalist Papers, and member of the Constitutional Convention were clouded after his death by strident claims that he was an arrogant, self-serving monarchist. Chernow delves into the almost 22,000 pages of letters, manuscripts, and articles that make up Hamilton’s legacy to reveal a man with a sophisticated intellect, a romantic spirit, and a late-blooming religiosity - See more at: http://www.thriftbooks.com/w/alexander-hamilton_ron-chernow/248552/?mkwid=s8qQFOqyY|dc&pcrid=82708320552&pkw=_cat:memoirs&pmt=b&plc=&gclid=CKOZg_mb-sgCFZGRHwodTLIMaw#isbn=1594200092

Hamilton’s achievements as first Secretary of the Treasury, co-author of The Federalist Papers, and member of the Constitutional Convention were clouded after his death by strident claims that he was an arrogant, self-serving monarchist. Chernow delves into the almost 22,000 pages of letters, manuscripts, and articles that make up Hamilton’s legacy to reveal a man with a sophisticated intellect, a romantic spirit, and a late-blooming religiosity. One fault of the book, is that Chernow is so convinced of Hamilton’s excellence that his narrative sometimes becomes hagiographic. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Chernow’s account of the infamous duel between Hamilton and Aaron Burr in 1804. He describes Hamilton’s final hours as pious, while Burr, Jefferson, and Adams achieve an almost cartoonish villainy at the news of Hamilton’s passing. A defender of the union against New England secession and an opponent of slavery, Hamilton has a special appeal to modern sensibilities. Chernow argues that in contrast to Jefferson and Washington’s now outmoded agrarian idealism, Hamilton was "the prophet of the capitalist revolution" and the true forebear of modern America. In his Prologue, he writes: "In all probability, Alexander Hamilton is the foremost figure in American history who never attained the presidency, yet he probably had a much deeper and more lasting impact than many who did." With Alexander Hamilton, this impact can now be more widely appreciated. --Patrick O'Kelley
