<h2>Explore the Individual Lives of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr and their Duel</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br /><b>Two captivating manuscripts in one book:</b><br /><ul><li>Alexander Hamilton: A Captivating Guide to One of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America</li><li>Aaron Burr: A Captivating Guide to the Life of Aaron Burr and the Most Famous Duel in American History</li></ul>Alexander Hamilton is one of the most extraordinary figures in American history. A deep thinker, a military leader, and a political dynamo, he was George Washington's right-hand man and perhaps the most important figure in the shaping of the Constitution. His policies and practices in government set the United States down a path of commercial wealth and economic stability. His ideas still resonate in the powerful nation he helped create.<br /><br />During his time, Hamilton was a divisive figure. A political extremist who antagonized the conservative parts of the new republic while protecting its former opponents. The man at the heart of the nation's first major sex scandal. A political operator whose actions outraged opponents and eventually led to the duel that cost him his life.<br /><br />It was an extraordinary life, made more extraordinary by Hamilton's origins. He was an outsider, an immigrant from the Caribbean who arrived in New York to make a new life for himself. In doing so, he helped to shape the framework of politics and commerce in America. In retrospect, the amazing thing about his fame is not its recent resurgence, but that it took so long for him to be widely recognized.<br /><br />The first part of this book tells the story of Alexander Hamilton. The story of a nation born in blood, in struggle, and in the dynamism that immigrants could bring.<br /><br /><h2>The First Part of this Book Includes Captivating Stories and Facts about Alexander Hamilton's</h2><br /><ul><li>Caribbean Childhood</li><li>Education and Quest for Finding Work</li><li>Military Career</li><li>First Steps in Politics</li><li>Part in the 1796 Election Campaign</li><li>Time in Public Office</li><li>Life After the Treasury</li><li>Affair with Maria Reynolds</li><li>Legacy</li></ul><b>Furthermore, Alexander Hamilton also played a big role in</b><br /><ul><li>The Constitutional Convention</li><li>Creating the Federalist Papers</li><li>The Formation of a National Bank</li><li>The Creation of Parties</li></ul>Based on his early achievements, Aaron Burr Jr. should have become an obscure but respected figure in American history. An officer in the Continental Army, a high flying lawyer, and an influential politician, his career peak was becoming the third vice president in US history.<br /><br />But after all these achievements, Burr's name is now associated with corruption and cruelty. He killed a man in an illegal duel while in office, and interest in that man, Alexander Hamilton, has revived Burr's reputation as one of history's villains. It was a reputation earned not just through the duel, in which he killed one of the brightest lights in the political firmament, but through a treasonous conspiracy after leaving the vice presidency.<br /><br />Who was Aaron Burr? What drove him to such achievements and such failures? And how did a respected politician become a publicly reviled villain? Pick up this book now to find out.<br /><br /><h2>The Second Part of this Book Covers Aaron Burr as</h2><br /><ul><li>A Young Man</li><li>A Revolutionary</li><li>A Politician</li><li>A Vice President</li><li>A Duellist</li><li>A Conspirator</li><li>And an Exile</li></ul><b>Scroll to the top and select the "BUY NOW" button for instant download so you can learn more about Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and their Duel!</b>
