Open Question: Please help, I have to write
So I'm writing an essay about this, and I honestly don't believe he did.
First with Angelica, she was famously very flirtatious , and the letters between her and Hamilton were kinda naughty, BUT, Angelica was happily married to a man she eloped with. When she met Hamilton, she was actually pregnant with her 2nd child. Also Hamilton named his son John Church Hamilton, John Church was Angelica's husband. Sooo, why would he name his son after the husband of the woman he cheated with? Also Angelica and her sister were extremely close, so no way she would betray her beloved sister and husband.
Now to Maria Reynolds. Hamilton wrote and published a very detailed recap of the affair. However, we should know that his father in law was a general, and his brothers in law were extremely powerful. This was a time when adultery could lead to prison, and Hamilton's own mother was imprisoned for running away from her crazy abusive husband. So why wasn't Hamilton punished? Why didn't his super rich and powerful wife divorce him? Why didn't his father in law, or brother in law challenge him to a duel, because this would have been considered a slight on the family's honor. So why not?!!
I believe that it was a cover up for something much much worse. Embezzling government money for something that involved Jefferson too. And I think that the Schyler family knew the truth. Adultery is much better than treason.
This essay is very important, please please tell me if my points are valid.
