Description


Alexander Hamilton started his life in the British West Indies. His story seems like a classic tale from rags to riches, of a poor boy whose hard work and perseverance allowed him to become one of the greatest historical figures of a nation. Alexander Hamilton left behind an impressive legacy, in no small part due to his success in defining the economic and political systems of the United States.

Inside you'll read about

  • The Orphan of the Caribbean
  • The New Boy in New York
  • A Revolutionary for Washington
  • A Commanding Critic and a Man of the Constitution
  • A Titan of the Treasury: Reports
  • A Titan of the Treasury II: The Two-Party Tango
  • A Flawed Man Through and Through
  • Resignation, the Reynolds Affair, and Wounds

And much more

Hamilton's Federalist Papers continue to be the basis for Constitutional interpretation and court decisions throughout the nation, and his creation of a national bank and decision to support a strong federal power over states' power helped lay the groundwork for what could be considered a national issue over a state issue. However, his reputation wasn't always so golden. These volumes offer a fuller picture of the life of Alexander Hamilton and the various factors that combined to make the life of such a driven, intriguing man.
