Join Alexander Hamilton every Sunday and Monday as he makes history come alive sharing anecdotes of his time with the Founding Fathers of the United States.
Alexander Hamilton immigrated to the colony of New York just before the War for Independence and rose to prominence through his bravery and intelligence but lost it all in a duel of honor. Mr. Hamilton was a lawyer that helped shape the separation of the American legal system from the long established British system. His contributions in the Federalist Papers helped convince New Yorkers and others to ratify the US Constitution. This “more perfect Union” continues to serve as the oldest representative democracy in the world.
Most importantly, as America's first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton created the monetary system that fueled America to become the world’s largest economy. Today the US dollar continues to serve as a world currency for most of the largest markets of goods, commodities and securities.
