Biographical / Historical
Alexander Hamilton (January 11, 1755 or 1757–July 12, 1804) was a founding father of the United States, chief staff aide to General George Washington, one of the most influential interpreters and promoters of the U.S. Constitution, the founder of the nation's financial system, and the founder of the Federalist Party, the world's first voter-based political party. As Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton was the primary author of the economic policies of the George Washington administration.
Burr and Hamilton notoriously feuded with one another, leading to a duel on July 11, 1804, when Burr fatally shot Hamilton.
