Alexander Hamilton: From Obscurity to Greatness provides an historic view of one of America's founders. Born in 1755 on a small Caribbean island to unmarried parents, Hamilton did not enjoy the privileges of wealth or heredity by which so many of his contemporaries advanced to the highest levels of power. Yet Hamilton's natural ability and ambition earned him prevailing influence in the American Revolution and the government created thereafter. Editor John P. Kaminski has gathered a remarkable collection of quotations by and about Alexander Hamilton that paint for us a nuanced portrait of a complex man. Through his own words and the words of his contemporaries, we can gain a better understanding of this fascinating man who rose from anonymity on a small Caribbean island to the corridors of power.
