The hit musical also details the lives of other important figures in American history, including former US presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington as well as Aaron Burr, Angelica Schuyler, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Gilbert du Motier, Hercules Mulligan, John Laurens, Marquis de Lafayette, Peggy Schuyler, and Philip Hamilton.
