The smash-hit musical Hamilton has put Alexander Hamilton back to the limelight, but who was this complex and mercurial Founding Father? Organized chronologically, this collection of Hamilton's personal letters, business and governmental correspondence, and excerpts from his most important published writings (including The Federalist Papers) provides firsthand insight into the man who engineered the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, created the United States' financial system, and established friendly trade relations with Britain. Along with 50 pages of illustrations, this annotated book includes love letters to his wife, Elizabeth Schuyler, and correspondence with his friend-turned-nemesis, Aaron Burr.
