Alexander Hamilton Review ☆ 102 Interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power His is a Hamilton far human than we’ve encountered before from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson Madison Adams Monroe and Burr and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza And never before has there been a vivid account of Hamilton’s famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804Chernow’s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton but the story of America’s birth seen through its most central figure At a critical time to look back to our roots Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as America. Hamilton was not the master builder of the Constitution the laurels surely go to James Madison He was however its foremost interpreter starting with The Federalist and continuing with his Treasury tenure when he had to expound constitutional doctrines to accomplish his goals He lived in theory and practice every syllable of the Constitution For that reason historian Clinton Rossiter insisted that Hamilton s works and words have been conseuential than those of any other American in shaping the Constitution under which we live Alexander Hamilton Ron ChernowI figured it was now or never to read Ron Chernow s Alexander Hamilton I have tickets to see HAMILTON in October I want to be up to speed when I see it Coming in at 818 pages I thought I d need to allot six weeks for this monster I was wrong This book flew by I finished it in less than two weeks I had joked with a friend that 2019 would be my year of big books Little did I know how prophetic that remark would beWhat amazed me most about Alexander Hamilton was Chernow s writing style This did not read as a dry dusty political biography Instead I was swept up in the character of Hamilton and the events and people that took place not only in America s early history but in the world of Hamilton s youth This was one exciting read a real pot boiler Time to stop gushing and start writing a proper reviewOther than George Washington no other American leader was present at turning points in the early years of the United States than Alexander Hamilton He was a rarity among men an outstanding thinker as well as excellent government visionary and executive Ron Chernow puts forth that Hamilton was the foremost political figure in American history who never attained the presidency yet he probably had a deeper and lasting impact than many who didHamilton was born in the West Indies and spent his childhood there and on St Croix Though Hamilton never returned to the Caribbean and rarely spoke of his upbringing Chernow emphasizes how much he was haunted by the scenes of his youth especially the viciousness of slave society and the languid morals of the islandsDespite a childhood that would make Oliver Twists s look like a picture of happiness Hamilton found a way to rise and prosper In 1772 or early 1773 he sailed away from St Croix and into American historyThe book s focus is Hamilton s political life especially his role in establishing a national government As a political thinker his greatest achievement was The Federalist Papers written in defense of the proposed ConstitutionChernow balances his appraisal of Hamilton by showing his shortcomings as well Chernow makes clear Hamilton lacked self restraint He often made and kept mortal enemies Chernow brilliantly observes that Hamilton was at his best when under George Washington s authority and watchful eye Washington was the father Hamilton had been deprived of in lifeChernow concludes with the steps and missteps of Hamilton s later life down to the heartbreaking scene of his eldest son s death in a duel in defense of his father s honor and finally to Hamilton s own death at Vice President Burr s hands in their duel at Weehawken New Jersey in 1804With Chernow s biography Hamilton has been vindicated and his reputation restored It is Chernow s biography that served as the inspiration for Lin Manuel Miranda s Hamilton Together Chernow and Miranda have made Hamilton the hero of the founding fathers as he should be I also love how much attention Chernow paid to Eliza Hamilton who outlived her husband 50 years She impressed on her family a singular duty Justice shall be done to the memory of my Hamilton With this breathtaking biography Eliza Hamilton s prophecy has been fulfilled

Alexander Hamilton Review ☆ 102 Ica is the result of Hamilton’s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time “To repudiate his legacy” Chernow writes “is in many ways to repudiate the modern world” Chernow here recounts Hamilton’s turbulent life an illegitimate largely self taught orphan from the Caribbean he came out of nowhere to take America by storm rising to become George Washington’s aide de camp in the Continental Army coauthoring The Federalist Papers founding the Bank of New York leading the Federalist Party and becoming the first Treasury Secretary of the United StatesHistorians have long told the story of America’s birth as the triumph of Jefferson’s democratic ideals over the aristocratic intentions of Hamilton Chernow presents an entirely different man whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self. I ve been wracking my brains literally for months trying to figure out who I can compare Alexander Hamilton to on the modern politocelebrity scene or to whom I can compare him if you douchey grammar wonks preferThere are two reasons that process has taken months 1 I m currently operating with the mental processing power of an old Radio Shack TRS 80 on the plus side I guess that means I can run awesome software like Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and 2 Alexander Hamilton was one uniue son of a Scottish lairdPut Kanye West Noam Chomsky Donald Trump and Steve Martin into a blender and what do you getWell probably a pretty disgusting slurry of liuefied body parts Let me rephrase put the personalities intellects and uirkiest components not to mention the thin skin in some cases of Kanye Noam Chomsky Donald Trump and Steve Martin into a personality intellect and uirk blending processor and what do you get Something that comes out looking but hopefully not smelling given that gents of that vintage probably didn t smell so fresh after a hot summer day traipsing about in heavy unwashed woolen garments a little bit like Alexander Hamilton I d be willing to wager that s the first time anyone anywhere ever has used both Noam Chomsky and Donald Trump as a comparison for an individual that s how singular Hamilton was And how much of a trailblazer I amSmarter people than I have written at great length about this book and its subject so I shan t prattle on for pages and pages Suffice it to say Alexander Hamilton is as influential a person as there is when it comes to shaping US political history and the institutions that affect our lives every single day and he was perhaps even uniue than he was influential Sure this book could replace the candlestick in the game of Clue just as easily as it can be an educational tool It was Colonel Mustard in the library with his copy of Hamilton that bludgeoned poor Professor Plum to death But there are few biographies of recent vintage that can match the immense scope mind boggling level of detail and compulsive readability of this one If you re a history buff in any way or just want to see what all the Broadway hubbub is about you ll want to give this book a whirlA couple of words of warning however first if you re a Thomas Jefferson acolyte you might want to brace yourself Mr Chernow does not treat our country s second Vice President and lifelong Hamilton rival kindly styling him a scheming Francophile bon vivant of the most pernicious kind though really if you re going to be a scheming bon vivant you might as well be of the most pernicious kind otherwise you re just half assing it and if I believe anything it s that anything worth doing is worth whole assing Second if ever a man was on another man s metaphorical nuts it is Ron Chernow on Alexander Hamilton s There are a few instances in which Mr Chernow attempts to maintain a fa ade or at least a veneer do we think a veneer is thinner than a fa ade of scholarly distance and objectivity but by and large his Hamiltonian hard on is of such obvious and epic proportions that I m told the Washington Monument has expressed concerns to the Mayor of Washington DC that when Chernow visits our nation s capital he s in violation of the Height of Buildings Act of 1910 The Mayor has thus far refused comment though a source indicates that he has at the very least asked that Mr Chernow not wear sweat pants when he visits the District and has asked him to and I uote try to tuck it into his belt We ll call this a strong 45 stars
