Margaret recommends "The Hamilton Affair"

When you think of Alexander Hamilton only a few things probably come to mind.  He is pictured on our $10 bill, was our first Secretary of Treasury, and he died from a duel. But there is more to the story than those facts.  The Hamilton Affair by Elizabeth Cobbs highlights Alexander Hamilton’s many contributions and love of America, the man he was, the true love story with his wife Eliza that survived infidelity, his political friends and foes, and about that fateful duel.  The author also gives insight about the contributions and character of his wife Eliza (Elizabeth Schuyler).  Elizabeth Cobbs, a Texas A&M University history professor, inspires you to learn more about Alexander Hamilton.  You can also check out Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical “Hamilton” on CD and Ron Chernow’s book Alexander Hamilton that inspired the musical and you too will soon become a "Hamilfan."

This book is suitable for adults.
