Description: Alexander Hamilton, the often overlooked founding father, helped get the Constitution ratified, served as the first Secretary of the Treasury, was like a son to Washington and perhaps should have been like a brother to Jefferson. Jefferson fought bitterly against Hamilton, articulating a different vision of America’s future. He promoted an agrarian democracy built upon geographic expansion—an “empire of liberty.” Eventually he resigned as Secretary of State in protest.
The Speaker: Louis Masur is Board of Governors Distinguished Professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University. He is a cultural historian who has written on a variety of topics, including Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, the Founding Fathers, visual culture, and the history of Rock and Roll.
