Description

Though a renowned Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton's fame has recently received a boost from the hit musical Hamilton. He was chosen as the subject of that work because of his extraordinary biography. He was raised by a single mother in the Caribbean, volunteered to be a soldier in the American Revolution, rose to become the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, and tragically killed in a duel with Aaron Burr. This accessible book presents Hamilton's life story to young readers through engaging text and includes surprising facts, relevant quotes from Hamilton himself, and striking historical images.
