INTRODUCTION: his home and island. After the hurricane

INTRODUCTION: The problem with people these days is that absolutely nobody knows who Alexander Hamilton is and today i’m going to answer the question who is Alexander Hamilton? Well most people know who George Washington is and also even who Thomas Jefferson is, but do you know who Alexander Hamilton is? Then I will tell you the life of Alexander Hamilton.ALEXANDER’S CHILDHOOD: Alexander was born on the island Nevis, in the British West Indies. He was born on January, 11, 1755 or 1757( the real year is unknown). Alexander had a really hard childhood, his father left him at a young age, and so Alexander and his mother had to take care of themselves, and since his mother had a hard time caring for her son, Alexander got his first job at eleven as an accounting clerk. Though only a year or so later the worst thing that ever could have happened had happened his mother had passed on the year of 1768 so he was left alone as an orphan. He stayed with other family members but it didn’t work out with any of them. He grew older and learned more about the importance of money and trading. A hurricane hit on the year of 1772 and it had devastated his home and island. After the hurricane Alexander had been left on a torn and destroyed island now homeless and still an orphan, but after his work time writing and working it was worth it, a man named Hugh Knox had read a letter Alexander wrote and knew that this young boy could not stay on this island so he sent Alexander to America to soon become a lawyer and so much more . So Alexander decided to attend King’s College when he was sixteen during the year of 1773, the location of the college was New York City. He went to this College and studied law.THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR: Alexander during the war had become apart of an artillery called the New York Provincial Artillery Company. During the year of 1777 Alexander had fought at the battles of Brandywine Creek, Germantown and Princetown, and was given the promotion of lieutenant colonel of Continental Army. From Alexander’s many years of experience in the war he caught the attention of George Washington, who then mad Alexander his assistant adviser. For five years Alexander wrote numerous letters and reports on the strategic reform of the Continental Army. Alexander missed helping to fight in the war and wanted to go, but Washington would not let him because he knew of the importance of Alexander staying. After lots of attempts to convince Washington to let him fight Washington had given up and let Alexander charge the army into the battle of Yorktown and they won.LAW CAREER: After the war Alexander left Washington and had began to study law during the year of 1783. He started out defending unpopular loyalists. During the war British forces had taken over the New York state in 1776 and many rebels had fled their homes, so many British loyalists had taken shelter at these abandoned homes, and soon the rebels came back to find that their homes had people living in their homes so Alexander’s job was to defend the loyalists. Later on in the year of 1784 Alexander took on the Rutgers V. Waddington case, that had to do with the rights of loyalists. And later that year he helped in founding the Bank of New York. He took on an additional 45 cases.GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS: Since Alexander had been an lawyer Alexander had always been apart of politics and very easily got into politics too. During the year of 1787 Alexander had served as an New York delegate, and he had met in Philadelphia with other delegates to work on or fix the Articles of Confederation. Alexander had told the delegates his view on how
