"Tomorrow There'll Be More of Us" is a song played in-between "Dear Theodosia" and "Non-Stop". It is not included in the cast album, and before the release of the Hamilton film the only professional recording that existed was from the Soundboard Recording.

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

Lyrics

[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.

Trivia

  • 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 cast recording.
  • 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. Lafayette falls to his knees putting his hands in his face, and Hercules chugs his flask.
  • The song can also be known as "Laurens Interlude".
