Alexander Hamilton: The Tomcat Fully Refuted

Posted on 14 May 2018 | 1:48 pm by MichaelENewton

Martha Washington did not have a tomcat named Hamilton and probably didn’t even have a tomcat at all. Certainly, she did not call Alexander Hamilton a tomcat.
The tomcat story was a satirical tale written in 1780 by Captain Smythe in his private journal.
Captain Smythe did not call Hamilton a “tomcat” nor did he imply that a tomcat was named after him because of his reputation.
The tomcat story first appeared in print in 1860.
The word “tomcat” had no sexual connotation when the story was written in 1780 or when it was first published in 1860.
