MerMay day 29. Orphan!

“How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore

And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot

In the Caribbean by providence impoverished

In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?”

By being young, scrappy, and hungry, that’s how! This merman is channeling his inner Alexander Hamilton while striking the famous Hamilton pose! Modeled after Lin-Manuel Miranda. 🧜‍♂️ ☝️ 🎶

I am not an artist, I am just having fun!

Lin-Manuel Miranda

Hamilton could have been president had this scandal not broken - though he was born in the West Indies, he was a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution. If one reads the requirements of being president, it says, “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” In other words, because Hamilton was a citizen when the Constitution was adopted, despite the fact that he was born in the West Indies, Hamilton could have become president. This scandal, whether the truth behind was with Maria Reynolds or was with speculation with insider knowledge, ended Hamilton’s chances. 

Sources: the following sources were used - the collected letters/writings of Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton the Revolution, Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton, The Intimate Life of Alexander Hamilton by Allan McLane Hamilton, Hamilton by Richard Syllia, and Charles Cerami’s book called Young Patriots. In addition, War of Two by John Sedgwick and Washington and Hamilton by Tony Williams were used throughout. Eliza Hamilton: The Extraordinary Life and Times of the Wife of Alexander Hamilton by Tilar J. Mazzeo was used too.

Never gon’ be president now.
