Summary
Here is the story of Alexander Hamilton, America's first Secretary of the Treasury, the founding father who is on the ten-dollar bill -- a brash and brilliant man who died in a duel and left a legacy that continues to this day. The American that Hamilton knew was largely agricultural and built on slave labor. He envisioned something else: a multiracial, urbanized, capitalistic America with a strong central government. Such an America would be a land of opportunity for the poor and for immigrants. His vision put him at odds with his archrivals -- Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, and others -- who preferred a pastoral America in which the federal government would remain small and weak. Hamilton's story epitomizes the American dream -- a poor immigrant who rose from poverty through his intelligence and ability. He made good in the new nation, and helped to create the United States of America
