1.025 – Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton in the NY Artillery by Alonzo Chappel, courtesy of Wikipedia

Year(s) Discussed: c. 1755-1787

In honor of Presidents’ Day, I am releasing this special mini-episode on the life of Alexander Hamilton leading up to the Constitutional Convention. As I am not Lin-Manuel Miranda and would likely drive listeners off if I attempted to sing, this is a spoken summation of Hamilton’s life including the challenges of his childhood, his early involvement in politics, his tenure in the Army during the Revolutionary War, and his career progression following the war. Source information for this episode can be found at http://presidencies.blubrry.com.

    1. Thanks so much for listening, Austin! Hamilton has played a prominent role in the narrative throughout the Washington presidency series to date and will be one of the key features in the episode coming out this Sunday as it deals with his exit from the administration. Though he’ll continue to appear in the narrative from time to time, I imagine that another special episode on his post-Treasury years may be in order. Stay tuned, and thanks so much for your interest!
