Alexander Hamilton and the Creation of the United States

Alexander Hamilton has been enjoying a renaissance. Indeed, Americans in the twenty-first century may admire Hamilton more than any generation since the founders themselves. An immigrant from the Caribbean, a disadvantaged orphan who became a war hero, a self-made man who rose to become a framer of the Constitution and architect of the American financial system, and ahead of his time in his opposition to slavery, Hamilton offers the modern reader much to admire.
