The Enduring Legacy of Alexander Hamilton
October 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$24
Founding Father Alexander Hamilton greatly influenced the content of our US Constitution. He campaigned for its adoption by the Thirteen States as one of the authors of the Federalist Papers. He had the clearest vision of how to create a US Economy and how it would develop in the future. As the First Secretary of the Treasury he set the course for how to finance the new federal government and establish the country’s strong credit. His economic vision and leadership paved the way for the Gold Standard, a national currency, the industrialization of the country in the post-Civil War period and the creation of the Federal Reserve System more than a hundred years later under Woodrow Wilson. Did the musical “Hamilton” get it right?
