"Tomorrow They'll Be More Of Us" is a track played in between "Dear Theodosia" and "Non-Stop". It can only be heard live onstage.

Alexander Hamilton receives a letter from John Laurens' father explaining Laurens' death in a gunfight in South Carolina before they were aware of the war being over.

LyricsEdit

[LAURENS]
I may not live to see our glory.

[ELIZA]
Alexander? There's a letter for you

[HAMILTON]
It's from John Laurens. I'll read it later

[LAURENS]
But I will gladly join the fight...

[ELIZA]
No. It's from his father

[HAMILTON]
His father?

[LAURENS]
And when our children tell our story...

[HAMILTON]
Will you read it?

[LAURENS]
They'll tell the story of tonight.

[ELIZA]
"On Tuesday the 27th, my son was killed in a gunfight against British troops
Retreating from South Carolina. The war was already over.
As you know, John dreamed of emancipating and recruiting
3,000 men for the first all-black military regiment.
His dream of freedom for these men dies with him."

[LAURENS]
Tomorrow there'll be more of us...

[ELIZA]
Alexander. Are you alright?

[HAMILTON]
I have so much work to do.

TriviaEdit

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted this to be a surprise song in the musical, which is perceived to be the reason why it was not placed on the original album.
  • In the live version, while Eliza and Hamilton receive word of John's death, Lafayette and Hercules Mulligan are on the balcony, also reading letters.
