Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary

Description

Complex, passionate, brilliant, flawed--Alexander Hamilton comes alive in this exciting YA biography by Martha Brockenbrough.

He was born out of wedlock on a small island in the West Indies and orphaned as a teenager. From those inauspicious circumstances, he rose to a position of power and influence in colonial America.

Discover this founding father's incredible true story: his brilliant scholarship and military career; his groundbreaking and enduring policy, which shapes American government today; his salacious and scandalous personal life; his heartrending end.

Richly informed by Hamilton's own writing, with archival artwork and new illustrations, Alexander Hamilton, Revolutionary is an in-depth biography of an extraordinary man.
