REDISCOVERING ALEXANDER HAMILTON
Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton is the second in our "Rediscovering" series. Richard Brookhiser returns as host. Beginning life as an illegitimate immigrant from the West Indies, Hamilton was a self-made man. As the first Treasury Secretary, Hamilton's service to the nation went far beyond setting up a branch of government. Then his life ended in the most famous duel in American history. We live in the still unfolding two-century-long boom that he began.
