264 years ago today, Alexander Hamilton was born. Take a moment today to watch this video and reflect on the enormous contributions Hamilton made to our fledgling nation.
It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that Alexander Hamilton invented the United States of America.
George Washington was the guiding star; Thomas Jefferson, the visionary; and Benjamin Franklin, the sage. But Hamilton was the pragmatist, the man who got it done.
This most self-made of self-made men took a country with no past and planned its future.
