Remembering Alexander Hamilton
Our deepest gratitude to you
3 months ago by SoPissed

Alexander Hamilton (January 11, 1755 or 1757 – July 12, 1804) was an American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.  He was an influential interpreter and promoter of the U.S. Constitution, the founder of the U.S financial system and the Coast Guard,  the Federalist Party, and more.  He was the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, George Washington’s indispensable right-hand man, and the main author of the economic policies for George Washington administration.  He established this country’s first national bank, a tariffs system, and devised a plan to fund by the Federal Government  the states’ huge debts then due to the revolutionary war.

During the short life he had lived his contributions to the foundations of this country are unparalleled.  He gave up his military pension to help  Washington’s cash-strapped army  pay those Continental soldiers. He was always careful not to benefit personally from his public services, and avoided business ventures that could give him a conflict of interest.

 We owe our deepest gratitude to you and your bequest, for which we are all so much beholden.

To completely understand his greatness,  I suggest the book ‘Alexander Hamilton’  by Ron Chernow
