Overview

As a hugely important figure in American history, Alexander Hamilton has not always gotten the credit he deserves. But today, he is finally getting some of the attention he should, thanks to the smash-hit Broadway musical, Hamilton. It might not be historically accurate to every detail, but it highlights some of his impressive accomplishments and gives a picture of his fascinating life, both personal and political.

If you're ready for the in-depth exploration of his life, look no further than Ron Chernow's biography, Alexander Hamilton. This book, in fact, was the inspiration for Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical Hamilton. Hamilton came from almost nothing, and against all odds made a name for himself in American history. After reading this book you will have even more appreciation for him.
