It's mentioned in the very first song.

Although it isn't touched on much throughout the rest of the play. And Hamilton is aligned with John Laurens in the first act who is mostly talking about abolishing slavery. I wasn't really expecting the play to be precisely historically accurate, but I can see possible room to include some additional lines if it is ever revised. I like the idea of the companion exhibit to flesh out the complex lives of the founding fathers.
