"We are outgunned, outmanned, outnumbered, outplanned."
Cabinet Battle #1
"If we assume the debts, the union gets a new line of credit, a financial diuretic"
"Secretary Hamilton, your response"
Cabinet Battle #2
Washington is right.
This was an argument about how America plans to fight the British on the New York Harbor, but they are overpowered by the British. Alexander Hamilton (left) fought for his position and doesn't want to throw it away by giving up on a war. George Washington (middle) asks Hamilton to be his right hand man.
... how lucky we are to be alive right now!
Hamilton is a federalist and the secretary of the treasury. He wants to create a national bank for the government funds and tries to tax the South. Then Jefferson (right), who is a republican, accuses him of trying to take peoples' money. He believed it was unconstitutional. Washington (middle) watches them argue and tells Hamilton to pull himself together.
You'll Be Back
You'll be the one complaining when I am gone.
Hamilton and Jefferson discuss whether America will help their ally, France, in a battle with England. Jefferson reminds everybody that they made a promise with the French that America would lend them a hand by providing France with supplies. Hamilton on the other hand, says that George Washington would never let our nation risk so much for a war that does not include our safety. He has loose ideas of the treaty because the King of France had died. Washington agrees with Hamilton.
That Would Be Enough
You should have told me.
The Schuyler sisters, Eliza (far left), Peggy (left), and Angelica (far right), go out to the town square after sundown and see how the Revolution is once they see people rioting and shouting. They know that their father wants to go to war. Aaron Burr approaches the girls and tries to gain their trust. Angelica mentions Thomas Paine's writing, Common Sense, when Eliza and Peggy tell Burr how lucky they are to be alive in Manhattan.
Listen to my declaration.
King George, the King of England, is angry about his people leaving and he tells them that once they leave, they will realize how good he treated them. He mentions the Boston Tea Party and his great army. King George threatens to kill peoples families and send an army after them to remind "his" people of the empire that they left behind. He claims that people will come back and will win the war.
Eliza tells Alexander about her pregnancy and he gets upset with her because she had not told him earlier. Eliza had called the general before, asking for Hamilton to be sent home. He explains to her that the war is not over yet and that he cannot leave now. All she wants is for Alexander to fight and stay alive so that he has a chance to meet their child.
