ALEXANDER HAMILTON
Alexander Hamilton was born in 1757. From Lt. Col. he was promoted to Major General of the Continental Army and served as senior aide de camp to Commander General George Washington and assisted Washington in running the Revolutionary War. He commanded three battalions at Yorktown, which along with the French support, succeeded in the surrender of the British and the winning of the Revolutionary War.

He was an American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of our country. He is founder of our nation’s financial system and created the National Bank. A promoter of the U. S. Constitution, he was author of 51 of the 85 Federalist Papers and founded the Federalist Party. He founded the U. S. Coast Guard, the New York Post newspaper and was the first Secretary of the Treasury.

Hamilton died as a result of a duel with Aaron Burr in 1804.
