This is an extraordinary collection of the writings of Alexander Hamilton, a founding father who was often misunderstood. Who till this very day has a reputation which few truly understand.

Yet, within this wonderful collection of both political, and private, correspondence, a man emerges like none written of in the history books.

We see him as a young man, not yet 20. With so much aspiration for the future! We see him during the revolution, both as a man, and as someone dreading the next battle to come. We see him as a man who grieves over loss, and celebrates over life's little victories.

A truly remarkable gathering of Hamilton's private, intimate writings helps us to see beyond the politico, and into the heart of just a man like so many others.

If you love history, you will truly enjoy this book. Tucker did a fabulous job of gathering Hamilton's papers. A big salute to you, sir!

You can find the book here  it is $13.51 for the hardcover, plus shipping and handling, and $12.99 for the Kindle version.

I give it five stars,

a big thumbs up,

and my personal recommendation.
