About the Author
Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804) was a Founding Father, soldier, economist, political philosopher, one of America's first constitutional lawyers, and the first United States Secretary of the Treasury. After serving in the Revolutionary War, he was elected to the Continental Congress, ultimately resigning to establish the Bank of New York. Hamilton was a main contributor to the influential Federalist Papers, a collection of essays written by himself, John Jay, and James Madison. He was mortally wounded in a famous duel with presidential candidate Aaron Burr.
Henry Cabot Lodge (1850-1924) was a Republican senator and historian from Massachusetts. He is best known for his positions on foreign policy, especially his battle with President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 over the Treaty of Versailles. He graduated from Harvard College and was the first student to graduate Harvard University with a PhD in political science. Lodge was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1878 and served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1880-1881; he also represented his home state in the United States House of Representatives from 1887-1893 and in the Senate from 1893-1924. He is the author of a number of historical works, including Alexander Hamilton, Hero Tales from American History, Theodore Roosevelt, and many others.
