A veteran of the American Revolution, where he became senior aide-de-camp and confidant to General George Washington, after the war he entered politics, serving several positions before becoming Washington's Treasury Secretary.

Alexander Hamilton in Southern Victory[]

In the Remembrance era of the United States between the Second Mexican War and the Great War, Alexander Hamilton, a New Yorker, enjoyed an upswing in popularity along with other northern Founding Fathers such as John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. This corresponded to a drop in favorable opinions of his Virginian contemporaries--especially his archrival Thomas Jefferson.[1]
