#29 Theodosias’ Burr - Hamilton

Today we are talking about two gals named Theodosia Burr. Both gals received well-rounded education (uncommon for gals at the time) but also both grew up in single-parent homes. Their connection to a Aaron Burr certainly gives a complexity to their lives but as you’ll find out, they were pretty complex themselves.  We’ll do our best to keep them clear with using Mama Theo - she’s one married to Aaron Burr, and Daughter Theo - she’s the child of Mama Theo and Aaron Burr and the subject of the beautiful song in the musical “Dear Theodosia.”
