FAIRFIELD, Conn. — You might not be able to snag tickets to the hit Broadway musical based on his turbulent life, but you can get up close and personal with a lock of Alexander Hamilton’s hair right here in Fairfield.

The unusual artifact, preserved by family members for generations, is one of several that will be on display in “Alexander Hamilton: the Man, the Myth and the Musical” at Fairfield Museum Thursday, July 13.

History buffs can also get a peek at a revealing love letter the founding father wrote to his wife Eliza, a scathing letter from John Adams and a rallying letter to defeat Thomas Jefferson after George Washington declined to run for a third term as president.

The pieces are all part of a larger collection being offered by rare historic document dealer Seth Kaller.

The event, which will run from 6 to 8 p.m., also includes a talk by Robert Begley of the New York Heroes Society. He will cover Hamilton’s childhood, his military valor and how he rose from an impoverished immigrant to hero status.

This event, held at the Beach Road museum, is free to members and $5 for the general public.
