Summary, etc.:
"A richly illustrated portrait of the Founding Father and first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury describes his experiences as an illegitimate orphan, soldier, friend, philanderer, political firebrand and financial whiz whose groundbreaking policies continue to shape today's American government"--Publisher
Born out of wedlock on a small island in the West Indies and orphaned as a teenager, Alexander Hamilton nonetheless rose to a position of power and influence in colonial America.. His military career brought him fame; his groundbreaking and enduring policy continues to shape American government today; his salacious and scandalous personal life and his heartrending end have made him immortal.
