Alexander Hamilton(January 11, 1755, or 1757 – July 12, 1804) was an American statesman and one of theFounding Fathers of the United States. He was an influential interpreter and promoter of theU.S. Constitution, as well as the founder of the nation's financial system, theFederalist Party, theUnited States Coast Guard, andThe New York Postnewspaper. As the firstSecretary of the Treasury, Hamilton was the main author of the economic policies of theGeorge Washington administration. He took the lead in the funding of the states' debts by theFederal government, as well as theestablishment of a national bank, a system of tariffs, and friendly trade relations with Great Britain. His vision included a strong central government led by a vigorous executive branch,a strong commercial economy, with a national bank and support for manufacturing, plus a strong military. This was challenged by Virginia agrariansThomas JeffersonandJames Madisonwho formed a rival party. They favored strong states based in rural America and protected by state militias as opposed to a strong national army and navy. They denounced Hamilton as too friendly toward Britain and toward monarchy in general, and too oriented toward cities, business, and banking. Hamilton often clashed with his contemporaries and was killed by Vice President Aaron Burr in a duel in 1804.
Now immortalized in the 2015 musical, Hamilton.
