By this point virtually everyone has ended up hearing about the Broadway show called Hamilton in some way, shape or form. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that this play has received some truly phenomenal views and that would obviously make you want to set aside some time so that you can watch it.

The thing to note about Hamilton on Broadway is that it features people of color in roles that would have otherwise been filled by white faces. This makes some people assume that the show is not historically accurate, but that could not be further from the truth. Line Manuel Miranda is the sort of person that wanted to be able to represent certain people that were not represented two hundred years ago which is why he cast people of color, but this has no bearing on the historical accuracy of the play itself.

In fact, this play is about as accurate as you can get. There are very few artistic liberties that are taken with the historical narrative due to the reason that Miranda wanted to convey the actual history of the country that we all know and love and that we are proud to live in. Going to watch this show can tell you a lot about history all in all.
