About this item

Find out who lived and who died in the incredible story of the founding father who made America modern—and became the toast of Broadway.
Until the runaway success of the Broadway musical, Alexander Hamilton was one of the least loved of the Founding Fathers, but his star has risen. This richly illustrated biography portrays Hamilton’s fascinating life alongside his key contributions to American history, including his unsung role as an early abolitionist. An immigrant from the West Indies, he played decisive parts in the political, legal, and economic development of the new nation: he served as Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War; he helped establish the Constitution; he wrote most of the Federalist Papers; and he modernized America’s fledgling finances, among other notable achievements. Noted Hamilton scholar and chairman of the Museum of American Finance, Richard Sylla, brings the flesh-and-blood man—the soldier, lawyer, political scientist, constitutionalist, finance minister, and politician—to life and provides captivating details of his private life as well as his infamous demise at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr, expertly telling Hamilton’s incredible story like no other.
