Overview

Award-winning biographer Jean Fritz brings one of America’s favorite Founding Fathers to life!

Most people know that Alexander Hamilton was killed in a duel with Aaron Burr, and that his face is on the ten-dollar bill. But he was much more than that, and here acclaimed biographer Jean Fritz explores all facets of his life. Born in the West Indies, Hamilton arrived in New York as an outsider. He fought in the Revolution and became Washington’s most valuable aide-de-camp. He was there for the writing of the Constitution and became the first Secretary of the Treasury. Fritz’s talent for bringing historical figures to life shines as she shares her fascination with this man of action who was honorable, ambitious, and fiercely loyal to his adopted country.
