FILE – In this file photo released by The Public Theater, Lin-Manuel Miranda, foreground, performs with members of the cast of the musical “Hamilton” in New York. A group dedicated to studying Alexander Hamilton will gather Thursday, July 7, 2016, in New Jersey. One of the researchers, Michael Newton, says that he has traced the story that Martha Washington named her feral tomcat after Hamilton to a piece of satire written by a man described as a British captain. The tale is included in a song in the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and in the biography that it’s based on. (Joan Marcus/The Public Theater via AP, File) MANDATORY CREDIT
