Alexander Hamilton’s Revolution: His Vital Role as Washington’s Chief of Staff

By December 9, 2019 No Comments

Despite his less-than-promising beginnings as the only key Founding Father not born and raised on American soil, Hamilton was one of the best and brightest of his generation. His notoriety has rested almost entirely on his role as Secretary of the Treasury in Washington’s administration, yet few realize that Washington and Hamilton’s bond was forged during the Revolutionary War. Alexander Hamilton’s Revolution is the first book to explore Hamilton’s critical role during the battle for independence. New information presents a little-known and underpublished aspect of Hamilton’s life: that he was not only Washington’s favorite staff officer but also his right-hand man for most of the Revolution, serving as Chief of Staff from 1777 to early 1781.
