Ron Chernow`s 2005 biography "Alexander Hamilton" brought one of the principal designers
of the American federal government to the attention of the general public. Born of
unmarried parents in the Caribbean island of Nevis, Alexander Hamilton became a successful
lawyer, brilliant soldier during the Revolutionary War, and first Secretary of the
Treasury. In fierce competition with Thomas Jefferson over the shape and direction
of the nation, he prevailed in his vision of an industrial economy with a national
bank and strong central government.
