Philip Hamilton’s Resting Place

August 06, 2020

Alexander Hamilton, who’s buried in the south churchyard of Trinity Church Wall Street, died in his late forties, killed in 1804 in a duel with then Vice President Aaron Burr. Less known, at least until the Hamilton musical opened five years ago, is the death of Hamilton’s eldest child, Philip, at age 19, also in a duel, in 1801, with the location of Philip’s grave a bit of a mystery.
