📖 About

Samuel Seabury, a Loyalist who is very much against the Revolution, sings against it, reading "Free Thoughts on the Proceedings of the Continental Congress" while the ever-sassy Alexander Hamilton fires back with his support of the change of power and his friends by his side - along with an already thoroughly exasperated Burr.
