Thanks Maj Marty Hogan for letting us know that January 11 is the anniversary of the birth of American statesman and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States Alexander Hamilton who was (1) an influential interpreter and promoter of the U.S. Constitution, (2) founder of the nation's financial system, (3) founder of the Federalist Party, (4) founder of the United States Coast Guard, and (5) founder of the New York Post newspaper.
He was a renaissance man with tremendous talent across a wide range of areas IMHO.
Rest in peace Alexander Hamilton.
I read the Federalist Papers as a cadet at West Point in the 1970s.
Of course benighted Treasury Secretary Jacob Joseph "Jack" Lew seem to knuckle under to post modern tendencies of the Obama administration to replace the man who advocated the dollar as our currency from the $10 bill.
Thankfully he is still depicted on the $10 bill.
In the current anti historical figure atmosphere I would not be surprised if in the future there is a clamor to remove slave owner former President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill.
Alexander Hamilton Biographer Ron Chernow discusses the legacy of one of the founding fathers of America. Chernow speaks on “Market Makers.”
