Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow; © 2005 by Penguin Books

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow presents a landmark biography of Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father who galvanized, inspired, scandalized, and shaped the newborn nation.
In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.”

Chernow’s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton, but the story of America’s birth seen through its most central figure. At a critical time to look back to our roots, Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as Americans. --Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16130.Alexander_Hamilton?ac=1&from_search=true&qid=hY1IN0RaMi&rank=1

This book is 800 pages; do not be daunted. Read as much as you like, and then perhaps watch the “Hamilton” play created by Lynn Manuel Miranda, and available for view on Disney+
