I love the musical of Hamilton, so for my genius hour project, I decided to rewrite the lyrics of the song, Dear Theodosia. I am singing my song to the class as my present stage.

I am writing about the first time I saw Tessie, like how Aaron Burr was talking about the first time he saw his daughter Theodosia. by Lila
