Cut Song
Notes
Taking place between The Reynolds Pamphlet and Burn in the Off-Broadway version of Hamilton, Congratulations was cut from the final version. However, several lines appear into the final version of The Reynolds Pamphlet.

In the song, Angelica has returned to the United States following the events of The Reynolds Pamphlet and Alexander's confession to the affair. And she really lets him have it.

In Hamilton: The Revolution (p. 235), Lin wrote of this song: "It came between The Reynolds Pamphlet and Burn, But we realized that the audience desperately wanted to see Eliza's reaction, so I folded the best parts of it into The Reynolds Pamphlet.
