Alexander Hamilton was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States; he was also a well-respected statesman and a successful military leader.

Starting to work at the age of nine, he later received informal education from his mentors before being sent to the King’s College, New York to be trained as a doctor. Here, he was quickly drawn into politics, writing his first published article at the age of seventeen. Later he joined the War of Independence and came close to General Washington, who on becoming President of United States made him the first Secretary of Treasury.
