Describes the life, career, and accomplishments of Alexander Hamilton, from his humble early life in the West Indies to his position of power in colonial America as a founding father.

McMillan Palgrave
A riveting read and richly illustrated YA biography of Founding Father, first United States Secretary of the Treasury, and subject of a hit Broadway musical, Alexander Hamilton.

Complex, passionate, brilliant, flawed—Alexander Hamilton comes alive in this exciting biography.

He was born out of wedlock on a small island in the West Indies and orphaned as a teenager. From those inauspicious circumstances, he rose to a position of power and influence in colonial America.

Discover this founding father's incredible true story: his brilliant scholarship and military career; his groundbreaking and enduring policy, which shapes American government today; his salacious and scandalous personal life; his heartrending end.

Richly informed by Hamilton's own writing, with archival artwork and new illustrations, this is an in-depth biography of an extraordinary man.

& Taylor

The author had the annoying habit of using Hamilton's first name in every other sentence. It was very tedious and began to sound like a Junior High student wrote the book. Not recommended.
