By Ron Chernow. ISBN 978-0-14-303475-9. Copyright 2004. Softcover with 818 pages including notes, bibliography, and index.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow presents a landmark biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton's turbulent life. Hamilton was a largely self-taught orphan who became George Washington's aide-de-camp in the Continental Army, co-authored the Federalist Papers, founded the Bank of New York, led the Federalist Party, and became the first Secretary of Treasury of the United States.
"Alexander Hamilton" is the inspiration for the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton".

This publication sheds light on historical events highlighted in the new Mount Vernon interactive experience, “Be Washington”, specifically the Genet Affair and the Whiskey Rebellion.

A Mount Vernon bookplate, signed by the author, is included with your purchase.
