Born in the the West Indies and overcoming great adversity as a young man, Alexander Hamilton led a truly extraordinary life. After his parents died when he was a child, rich benefactors recognized his abilities and talent and sent him to New York City. He pursued a college education and soon joined the colonies' fight for independence from Great Britain. During the Revolutionary War, Hamilton became the senior aide to General George Washington. Following the war, Hamilton was an active participant of the Constitutional Convention and helped secure the Constitution's ratification through The Federalist Papers. He went on to establish the new nation’s financial system as the first Secretary of the Treasury; founded the Federalist Party; and created the U.S. Coast Guard. He was killed in an infamous duel with Vice President Aaron Burr in 1804, on the banks of the Hudson River.
