I've always been a fan of history, so when the musical Hamilton came to Broadway I was obsessed, to say the least. When I found out the musical was based on the biography written by Ron Chernow I just had to read it. I was not disappointed. The book goes into a lot more detail about the ups and downs in the life of Alexander Hamilton and how he came to be one of America's greatest founding fathers.
Traces the life of Alexander Hamilton, an illegitimate, largely self-taught orphan from the Caribbean who rose to become George Washington's aide-de-camp and the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.
