The Works of Alexander Hamilton: Volume 6 Alexander Hamilton Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Unfortunately, one of the best known aspects of Alexander Hamilton’s (1755-1804) life is the manner in which he died, being shot and killed in a famous duel with Aaron Burr in 1804. But Hamilton became one of the most instrumental Founding Fathers of the United States in that time, not only in helping draft and gain support for the U.S. Constitution but in also leading the Federalist party and building the institutions of the young federal government as Washington’s Secretary of Treasury. 
One of the biggest battles was over the chartering of a national bank, a topic that seems trivial today given the size and scope of the federal government. At the founding, however, the Southern states and Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic Party were skeptical of the necessity of a national bank, while Hamilton’s Federalists insisted that it would help the nation pay off its debts and manage its finances. Eventually Hamilton won out, but the First U.S. Bank, located in Philadelphia, was nonetheless run by a private company, ensuring limits on government control.
This edition of Hamilton’s Works: Volume 6 includes his writings on Foreign Relations, Foreign Policy, The Whiskey Rebellion, and other Military Papers, covering the first military crises the young nation faced. It is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Hamilton and other Founding Fathers.
