Alexander Hamilton and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Although the first American-born saint doesn’t appear in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton,” Elizabeth Ann Seton and Eliza Hamilton did collaborate on charitable projects. Before Elizabeth became a Catholic, the Setons and the Hamiltons attended Trinity Church, an Episcopalian Church on Wall Street which counted many socially prominent New Yorkers among its parishioners.
