Alexander Hamilton

Author Code: AAHX

Born: Jan. 11, 1755 - Nevis, West Indies

Died: Jul. 12, 1804 - Weehawken, New Jersey, USA

After a period in charge of a countinghouse on the island of Saint Croix, Hamilton went to America and studied in Elizabethtown, New Jersey and entered King's College (Columbia) (1772-74). Hamilton wrote a number of pamphlets during 1774-75 which brought him wide recognition as a gifted writer. Among these was The Farmer Refuted. He became an artillery captain taking part in the battles of White Plains, Trenton and Princeton. He was made aide-de-camp to Washington in 1777 and distinguished himself at the battle of Yorktown.

As a member of the Annapolis convention, he drafted the resolution that led to the Constitutional Convention and he was a signer of the U.S. Constitution. In order to secure support for the Constitution, he started, together with John Jay and James Madison, a series of essays which became part of The Federalist which has become a classic on American constitutional law. In 1789, Hamilton became secretary of the treasury. He returned to law practice in 1795, later to be appointed major general in 1798. In 1800, he supported Thomas Jefferson against Aaron Burr and again in 1804, was instrumental in the defeat of Burr as candidate for govenor of New York. Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel in which Hamilton was mortally wounded.
