Alexander Hamilton: Striver, Statesman, Scoundrel
This event is now closed.
Alexander Hamilton, an orphaned immigrant from the Caribbean, acted as George Washington's top aide in the American Revolution, created the American financial system, and waged ideological battles against Thomas Jefferson in the earliest days of American political parties. His vision, ambition, and voluminous writings inspired his admirers, enflamed his opponents, and continue to captivate contemporary audiences. In this exhibition, The New York Public Library presents a selection of its holdings to illuminate the many facets of Alexander Hamilton--a striver, statesman, and scoundrel.
