One of the most controversial men of his age, Alexander Hamilton was a gifted statesman brought down by the fatal flaws of stubbornness, extreme candor and arrogance. His life and career were marked by a stunning rise to power, scandal and tragedy. But his contributions survive. As Secretary of the Treasury during the tumultuous early years of the republic, Hamilton led the transformation of the young country into industrial powerhouse.

Now I Understand

By Missy

Comments about PBS American Experience: Alexander Hamilton DVD:

Now I have a better understanding of Alexander Hamilton's ability to be the first Secretary of the Treasury, having been a teenage businessman in the import/export business. Few understood currencies and trade as he did. Also, his social ambitions are understandable when one realizes his aristocratic gene pool mixed with the humiliation of his illegitimate birth. He married well but was a rascal.

Mesmerizing account

By Mona

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Alexander Hamilton DVD:

The combination of reenactment using original texts and brilliant commentary by expert historians who also know how to speak makes Mr Hamilton's life palpably real. Like Mozart (and others) he was a visionary born way ahead of his time. How tragically his life ended, and what could have been had he not died at the age of 49, is hard to imagine and comprehend. This program, as many others in the American Experience series is a must-own.

A great leader.

By Manny

from Texas

Comments about PBS American Experience: Alexander Hamilton DVD:

I'm only on chapter 8, and this by far the greatest men that has ever lived! Wow! If only more leaders would rise up and change their surroundings for the greater good and not for selfish ambitions. Once again, wow!
