READ Alexander Hamilton

DOWNLOAD Ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Ron Chernow Ron Chernow à 6 REVIEW REVIEW Alexander Hamilton î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. If they break this Union they will break my heartAlexander Hamilton If anybody had told me a year ago that I would be delving into an 800 page biography on arguably America s least known Founding Father first Secretary of the Treasury and he of ten dollar bill fame I would have said they were crazy But like so many people who will read this book in the coming years it all started with a mad love affair for the Broadway musical It s literally all I ve been able to think about or listen to since April It s consumed my waking hours in the oddest most unpredictable joyous of ways Having now read Chernow s impressive meticulously researched book I am no longer surprised how it was able to inspire Lin Manuel Miranda to write his extraordinary beautiful emotional smart searing perfect musical and that s all I m going to say about the musical because I really want this review to focus on Chernow s accomplishment and his fascinating subject Alexander Hamilton One of the things that really jumped out at me while reading this is how easily Hamilton s remarkable life and stupendous achievements could have been erased and lost to history for good He had many enemies many people who wanted to re write history minimizing his role in it and deny his many staggering contributions Hamilton died relatively young as well just 49 way younger than many of the other Founding Fathers who outlived him by decades except George Washington of course When you don t survive to live and tell your story you are really at the mercy of others Remember this line from Braveheart History is written by those who have hanged heroes Was Alexander Hamilton a hero I think by most definitions he most certainly was Flawed for sure but nevertheless an extremely intelligent man with confounding reserves of energy and ambition and a deep abiding inner moral compass of what was ethical and right He also possessed an unsurpassed formidable ability to synthesize large complicated ideas into accessible tracts and tangible plans to build meaningful and lasting governments and institutions And oh yeah he also wielded his pen in a terrible and mighty way that would have made Shakespeare uiver in his breeches producing mountains of passionate and fiercely written letters and pamphlets and essaysI also have to believe Hamilton was truly a good man because two very intelligent women remarkable in their own rights his wife Eliza and his sister in law Angelica Church loved him beyond measure and sang his praises for a lifetime How do you avoid getting written out of history by those who have hanged heroes Write brilliantly like a maniac non stop leaving behind some of the most important historical tracts ever penned and be survived by a loyal and dedicated wife who will outlive you by 50 years and spend most of that time fighting for your reputation and the preservation of your rightful place in history Reading Hamilton whilst the sturm und drang of the upcoming American election rages in all its frightful rhetoric and bitter partisan vitriol has made for uite an echo chamber of America s shaky fledgling post Revolutionary days and just how tenuous the fabric that binds all the States together really is It was never a marriage made in heaven oftentimes held together by duct tape threats and sheer iron will America was a walking contradiction with its State vs Federal rural vs urban North vs South slaveholding vs free divides Nobody knew and feared these fractures than Hamilton himself But he also knew a United States would be stronger and better than a dissolute nation of independents jockeying for power and control and consumed with self interest I do believe Chernow has proven that no other Founding Father worked as determinedly with every cell in his body and top notch brain to preserve the Union and uphold the Constitution There were many compelling forces and influential personalities with the capability to topple this marvelous enterprise with a single huff and one good blow But it was Hamilton standing vigilant it was Hamilton who roared and cajoled and screed not on my watch and here s why It s also no wonder then that on his death bed surrounded by his family and friends that Hamilton should utter with such deep feeling If they break this Union they will break my heartHamilton s life all 49 years of it reads like a Dickensian novel More than once while I was reading I couldn t help but smack my forehead at the stranger than fiction details and uncanny coincidences and twists of fate both tragic and ironic That he began his life as a poor orphan in the Caribbean only to help fight for and build a nation an ocean away is something out of a movie plot As is his infamous death by duel at the hands of then Vice President Aaron Burr sir Who dies in a duel Hamilton does And a few years prior to that fateful meeting in Weehawken his eldest son Philip using the same pistols would die the same stupid way There were many times when I wanted to shake Hamilton and kick him especially when he was tomcatting around and cheating on Eliza with Maria Reynolds but this final decision to duel with Aaron Burr absolutely infuriated me It was SO UNNECESSARY especially given the fact Hamilton still had a wife and young children who depended on him Of course it was a dueling era and duels were pretty commonplace and Chernow makes a strong case that Hamilton wasn t suicidal and really believed he could survive the duel with Burr as most participants do However there was also a part of him that knew he could die since he was so thorough and conscientious in his handling of his affairs And writing a poignant final letter to Eliza which if I had been her I m sure I would have pulled my hair out Alexander knew how utterly devastated Eliza was to lose their son Philip so HOW COULD HE DO THAT TO HER AGAIN Eliza should have been crushed by the grief losing her mother her sister her son her HUSBAND all in a very short time span Yet she persevered and would survive to accomplish many remarkable things in her own right not the least of which was to ensure her husband s rightful prominent place in the history books And now I m off to listen to the Broadway cast album AGAIN Because I can t stop Girl of Nightmares unpredictable joyous of ways Having now read Chernow s impressive meticulously
