An immigrant from the West Indies, he played a crucial part in the political, legal, and economic development of the new nation: He served as Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War; he helped establish the Constitution; he wrote most of The Federalist Papers; and he modernized America's fledgling finances, among other notable achievements. Noted Hamilton scholar and chairman of the Museum of American Finance, Richard Sylla, brings the flesh-and-blood man--student, soldier, lawyer, political scientist, finance minister, and politician--to life and reveals captivating details of his private life as well as his infamous demise at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr..."--provided by publisher.
