Annotation This one-volume biography of the Founding Father charts Alexander Hamilton's career and accomplishments, which included serving as a close aide to General Washington in the Continental Army and as the first Secretary of the Treasury, as well as being co-author of The Federalist Papers. Randall also reveals a man of pleasures whose aristocratic airs brought out strong (and often negative) feelings in others--and which ultimately led to his death in a duel with Burr in 1804.
Editors Note From his less than auspicious start in 1755 on the Caribbean island of Nevis to his untimely death in a duel with his old enemy Aaron Burr in 1804, Alexander Hamilton, despite his short life, left a huge legacy. Orphaned at thirteen and apprenticed in a counting house, the precocious Hamilton learned principles of business that helped him create the American financial system and invent the modern corporation. But first the staunch, intrepid Hamilton served in the American Revolution, acting as General Washington's spymaster. Forging a successful legal career, Hamilton coauthored the Federalist Papers and plunged into politics. Irresistibly attractive to women, he was a man of many gifts, but he could be arrogant and was, at times, a poor judge of character. In this meticulously researched, illuminating, and lively account, Willard Sterne Randall mines the latest scholarship to provide a new perspective on Alexander Hamilton, his illegitimate birth, little-known military activities, political and diplomatic intrigues, and sometimes scandalous private life.
