The inspiration for the wildly popular Broadway musical, Hamilton, this is a sympathetic portrait of Alexander Hamilton, who immigrated to the United States from the Caribbean and earned a leading role in the American Revolution through his remarkable talents. While Hamilton is most famous for his death in a dramatic duel against fellow politician Aaron Burr, Chernow makes a compelling argument that his adventurous life and varied contributions to finance, law and American governance deserve more public recognition. Great for fans of the hit musical or history lovers seeking behind-the-scenes perspectives on the founding fathers of the United States.
