The Hamilton Affair

I always knew of Alexander Hamilton but mostly from the duel with Aaron Burr.  So, it was interesting to learn about the man, the soldier, thinker and  statesman.  Born in St. Croix, he made his way to the United States, fought for its independence and helped to establish the country in its early years.  Villified by many, this novel gives us a good accounting of Mr. Hamilton’s life and family.  I enjoyed it very much and I recommend it.  

It is so interesting to learn about our forefathers in a more personal way through these novels.
