The character traits of history

by Zooey Tell Gazette Contributing Writer

In life, many people seem to be struggling with different challenges they face each day. There are so many different lessons around for people to learn and apply which would make them happier. The musical Hamilton (available to watch on Disney+) is filled with a lot of these lessons. Have you ever watched Hamilton or heard about the duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton? Well it’s a quite wonderful thing that many people have become attached to (After watching the musical). There are also a lot of lessons and characteristics that we can take out of the musical.

Sometimes it is best to be the bigger person and to swallow your pride. Although Burr and Hamilton have done pretty bad things equally, they decided to have a duel to end their conflict. However, when dueling, Hamilton decided in the end he should shoot the air. This ultimately led to his death as Burr shot Hamilton in the ribs.

Alexander Hamilton risked his life to be a better person, and people should use this as an example to be the bigger person when it comes to arguments and disagreements.

It is always great to help those who are hurting, so you can make them better. Compassion is present with Hamilton. Hamilton’s sister-in-law was going through some trouble and Hamilton woke up every morning and wrote her a letter. He told her how his son is doing and even how Eliza is doing. This is compassionate because he takes an hour out of everyday to write a letter, and because Angelica (his sister-in-law) cares a lot about Eliza.

“Talk less and smile more.” This quote by Aron Burr is really important to the storyline. Why you may ask, it is Burr telling Hamilton that if he keeps opening his mouth it may be his doom.

Basically King George The 111 says that if you open your mouth “ I will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love.” so, Burr is telling Hamilton to be careful.

Aron Burr’s quote “I am the one thing in life I can control” is a reminder that you are the one thing in life you can control. He emphasizes that you are inimitable and original, and that you can only control how you handle disagreements. He also emphasizes the importance of self control and removing the mindset of trying to control or contain everyone else.

Hamilton’s song “Telling The Story Of Tonight” emphasizes the importance of having a team.

It reminds us that in almost every sport, there is a team. Without a team, one would not play as well as one does with a team, but with a team, one would have friends outside of school and play much better.

A lot of people cannot wait for the next big historical masterpiece that will provide the same level of life lessons. Hamilton was and will always be a big part of many people’s lives but if there comes another historical masterpiece maybe that will be their new favorite book/musical. The important thing is that there’ll be more important life lessons to include in our lives.

“This could steal the paper.”
