Description

Thomas Jefferson was one of the men who helped to bring the United States into being, and he shepherded the country through some of the most dynamic political years in its history. It is very possible that without his brilliance, the fledgling democracy, the first in the world since the end of Ancient Greece, may not have survived its first few trials by fire. Alexander Hamilton started his life in the British West Indies. His story seems like a classic tale from rags to riches, of a poor boy whose hard work and perseverance allowed him to become one of the greatest historical figures of a nation. Alexander Hamilton left behind an impressive legacy, in no small part due to his success in defining the economic and political systems of the United States. Inside you'll read about Thomas Jefferson. Born to Privilege Thomas Jefferson. Revolution and Nation Building Thomas Jefferson. Presidency Thomas Jefferson. Second Term Alexander Hamilton. The Orphan of the Caribbean Alexander Hamilton. A Commanding Critic and a Man of the Constitution Alexander Hamilton. A Titan of the Treasury: Reports Alexander Hamilton. Resignation, the Reynolds Affair, and Wounds And much more!Jefferson was a scientist, fascinated by the development of new crops and scientific agricultural techniques. He was an architect who helped to promote the popularity of neo-classical and Neo-Palladian architectural forms. He was a prodigious writer, a linguist who mastered several languages, and a naturalist who studied birds, wine, natural bridges and soil conditions. Thomas Jefferson improved many contemporary inventions, adapting them to his needs. Hamilton's Federalist Papers continue to be the basis for Constitutional interpretation and court decisions throughout the nation, and his creation of a national bank and decision to support a strong federal power over states' power helped lay the groundwork for what could be considered a national issue over a state issue. However, his reputation wasn't always so golden. These volumes offer a fuller picture of the life of Alexander Hamilton and the various factors that combined to make the life of such a driven, intriguing man.
