The Best of American Heritage synopsis: Alexander Hamilton – founding father, first treasury secretary, founder of the national bank – is in the spotlight again. But for American Heritage, the seventy-year-old history magazine, Alexander Hamilton has never been out of style or considered old-fashioned. In these pages: Dorothie Bobbe chronicles the early days of Alexander Hamilton in the Caribbean islands; Robert C. Alberts traces the compelling tale of Hamilton’s scandalous affair with Maria Lewis Reynolds; John Steel Gordon tackles Hamilton’s building of the national financial system; and James R. Webb challenges the long-held notion that Hamilton was “the noble victim” in his historic clash with a jealous and vindictive Aaron Burr.
