Product Description

A largely self-taught, Caribbean-born orphan, Hamilton, the principal architect of the American federal government system, rose with stunning speed to become George Washington's aide-de-camp, a battlefield hero, a member of the Constitutional Congress, the leading author of The Federalist Papers (with James Madison) & head of the Federalist Party. As the first treasury secretary, he forged both tax & budget systems, the origins of our central banking system as well as becoming the virtual patron saint of Wall Street. This monumental portrait offers the full sweep of Hamilton's turbulent, ambitious life, through to his fatal duel with sitting Vice-President, Aaron Burr, in 1804. Addenda/Illus. 818p.
