Read the story of the Founding Father who inspired the smash Broadway musical.
Born in the British West Indies and orphaned as a child, Alexander Hamilton made his way to the American Colonies and studied to become a lawyer. He joined a local militia during the American Revolution, rose to the rank of Major General, and became the chief aide to General George Washington. After the war, he became the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. He founded the Bank of New York and The New York Post newspaper. He served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and is also celebrated as a co-author of The Federalist Papers, a series of essays that are still used today to interpret the U.S. Constitution.
The end of his life became a national scandal when he was shot and killed in a duel with then-Vice President Aaron Burr.

THERES A MILLION THINGS I HAVENT DONE, BUT JUST YOU WAIT, JUST YOU WAAAIT
I really liked this book, however I really wished it went a bit more in depth this all of the details. I wish it had talked about the affair with Moriah Renols and a little bit more about Angelica. Otherwise it was a good book. I also LOVE the musical, I’m so glad that it was added to the end of the book.
