Excerpt from The Greatest American Alexander Hamilton: An Historical Analysis of His Life and Works Together With a Symposium of Opinions by Distinguished Americans My dear Mr. Vandenb erg: I am deeply interested to know concerning your proposal to impress modern America with the Nation's debt to Alexander Hamilton. It is a most worthy undertaking and it affords me particular satisfaction to know that you have taken up this undischarged obligation. No man's life ever gave me greater inspiration than Hamilton's; and no man's life ever made greater contribution to the founding and the functioning of constitutional America. The greater modern familiarity with Hamiltonism may become, the greater will be modern fidelities to essential American institutions.

This is the 27th book I've read on Alexander Hamilton. I bought two more of these books for friends because: many books do a terrific job of telling his chronological story very well. However, this book tells you the profound affects and effects of what Hamilton did for the Union and the success of our country, and the influence on the world. Without a successful financial system, no form of government would survive. Our Constitution owes a big debt of gratitude fo Hamilton's wisdom and Washington's respectability from the public to give these new ideas a chance to prove themselves. Thanks!
