If you’ve seen the musical “Hamilton,” you have heard the lovely ballad titled “Dear Theodosia” that Aaron Burr sings to his baby daughter. Theodosia was Burr’s only child and received an outstanding education that was rarely provided to females in the eighteenth century.

In addition to speaking three languages, she read Greek and mastered subjects such as arithmetic, music, and English composition.
