Happy Birthday Alexander Hamilton!

Come celebrate this Founding Father’s birthday – join the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society on January 8-13th for events in Nevis, New York and New Jersey.

Alexander Hamilton was born on January 11, 1757 on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean. At age 15, he moved to New Jersey and then New York to get an education. From there, he became a prominent figure during the Revolutionary War and the founding of United States. Perhaps best known today for being the first Secretary of the Treasury and principal author of the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton has had long-lasting influences in law, politics, economics, finance, industrial development, education, foreign affairs, the military, and more.
