Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton

Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton aired on PBS this past Monday.  Fantastic stuff.  Brookheiser uses clever means to bring Hamilton’s legacy to the screen with contemporary relevance.  He also engages in some interesting arm-chair psychology as he explores AH’s coming of age in St. Croix.  (E.g., speculating that his exposure to the slavery of the sugar cane fields disabused him of any of Jefferson’s romantic notions of an agrarian economy.)

One Response to Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton

  1. Hamilton was a Federalist so ANTI-Bill of Rights, PRO central bank (as brought out in the first video) or — more accurately — PRO international bankster. Ergo, he was NOT an advocate of “freedom” in ANY sense.
