My Report on Alexander Hamilton: 11/4/2016 22:14:33

Just thought I'd post this report I wrote on Alexander Hamilton last year in school.

(And yes, I know I use "after" too much. 'K?)

Alexander Hamilton: Father of the Federalists

Edit: I'm much more interested in what people think of the writing than content.


Alexander Hamilton’s life is a story that could inspire anyone, from anywhere. It’s
a story of determination, persistence, and hard work. His story is one of a boy who grew
up poor and orphaned, and made something great of his life and himself. His life is a
tribute to the American Immigrant, and he is the epitome of an example of why America
is so great: the fact that people who come from other nations, that are poor, that are
unknown, can, with hard work and determination, become successful Americans.

At the beginning of the life of Alexander Hamilton, life did not look bright. Born on
a small island in the Caribbean Sea in 1755, Alexander Hamilton’s early life was brutally
scarred by tragedy after tragedy. His father abandoned him, his mother died of disease,
and afterwards one by one his remaining relatives all died within two years, save for his
brother. Afterwards, he was employed by a merchant company which, after several
years, paid for him to move to America to be educated. He quickly became well known
for his charm and intelligence. He attended King’s College in New York City, and he
quickly fell in love with the city and its inhabitants. Quickly he began to side with
American Patriot groups on many issues, and joined the Sons of Liberty, a well known
society of American patriots.

Once the Revolutionary War started, he joined the army
and became the youngest American Captain. After proving himself in several battles, he
was asked by Washington to become an Aide-de-Camp. During the war, he married
Elizabeth Schuyler. After several years of being an Aide for Washington, an argument
happened which resulted in him quitting as Aide and rejoining the fight as a Colonel.
This, however, was just in time for Hamilton to become a hero at Yorktown- the final
major fight of the war; it was his heroic deeds in this fight that made him well known for
his future political career.

After the war, he finished his studies and became a well
known and successful lawyer. However, very quickly he became heavily involved in
politics, and was very important in the debate regarding the adoption of the Constitution
of the United States. His state, New York, was the last major state to hold out in refusing
to adopt the Constitution. It was during this difficult time that he helped constructed his
magnum opus, the Federalist Papers, a vivid and ideal description of the ideas and
concepts of the Constitution. He wrote about two thirds of the papers, the rest written
mostly by Madison and a few by Jay.

After the adoption of the Constitution and the
formation of the Federal Government, he was chosen by George Washington to be the
first Secretary of the Treasury. During this time, he was the most influential person in
America, as Washington valued his opinion very highly and often listened to him over
Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Hamilton’s main political rival at that time.
Jefferson was the de-facto leader of the Republicans; Hamilton was leader of the
Federalists, which included George Washington. After Washington’s second term as
President, Hamilton retired from holding official government office and once again
practiced as a lawyer.

It was not long after this time that his rivalry with a man named Aaron Burr
became more and more serious. Eventually, on July 11, 1804, Alexander Hamilton
met near the Hudson River at Weehawken, New Jersey, where, in a duel, Burr fatally
Injured Alexander Hamilton. The next day, on July 12, Hamilton died.

Alexander Hamilton’s influence upon the United States of America rivals that of
any other Founding Father- even George Washington’s. He was the creator of the
foundation of America’s economic symbol, and proof of the freedom and opportunity
that America offered.

@Xpapy, please go jump off a cliff. We don't need your stupidity anymore.

Joking!

In all seriousness, though, display some common sense when you talk. I don't like Alexander Hamilton because he was an American- fun fact, Alexander Hamilton grew up in the caribbean.

I like Alexander Hamilton because I like him as a historically figure.

Actually, I dislike most American historical figures, from F.D.R. to Thomas Jefferson (I don't disagree with him, I just think he was a hypocrite).

So, Xpapy, before you go off jerking to "patriotism is bad," then please, know who the f**k you're talking to.

Outside of Alexander Hamilton, my favorite historical figures are C S Lewis and... I don't think I have any particular liking for any others.

Ironically, Alexander Hamilton wanted to be Pres, but he got caught in an affair with a married woman when he was married.

Things like that were a much bigger deal back then.

and Corneliu Codreanu was ethnically Polish; still went on to be the leader of Romanian fascism.

But I wasn't saying you were too patriotic.

Also yep Zephryum has it spot on.

I would like to know more about Hamilton's conflict with Arron Burr. When did it start and why? Who was at fault? Was it a question of politics or something else?

Hamilton overcame the circumstances of his youth which is laudable, but it is not unique. What in particular do you admire most about the man?

What the heck does being the "creator of the foundation of America's economic symbol" mean? I have not the first clue what you are writing about there.

Your essay is good enough to get me interested. I'd like to hear more.

Ehhh, Not to hot in my opinion. Not trolling, I just about fell asleep half way through. Alexander Hamilton had such a brilliant, interesting, and funny life. You didn't do it enough justice. Plus Aaron Burr wasn't mentioned enough. That was the first physical political rivalry in American politics. You should have blasted it for miles. Cudos on grammar tho lol

EDIT: Washington was never a federalist. He agreed with them a lot but he never had a political affiliation. Also, the official party was " Democratic-Republicans " You need to pay attention to that because there was another small party at the time called just Republicans.

Also not that I'm one to criticize on grammar and writing style but it would have been smarter not to use the word life twice in one sentence.

" At the beginning of the life of Alexander Hamilton, life did not look bright "

Replace the second " Life " with ' prospects ' or ' future '

" At the beginning of the life of Alexander Hamilton, his future ( Or prospects ) did not look bright. "

Other then that, fine writing style. Oh and if this is for school tell me what your final grade was!

Being killed is also an effective way to keep oneself from winning the US presidency.
