Alexander Hamilton, one of the founders of the United States of America was also the chief architect of the US constitution and the country’s financial system. He was also the chief staff aide to the former American president George Washington. There are very few people of his repertoire seen in the pages of history, who have achieved so much during their lifetime. Hamilton held posts of prime importance and discharged duties that were vital for the country. He established the ‘Federalist Party’, founded the ‘New York Post’ and helped chart the constitution. The ‘US Coast Guard’ and several governmental organizations were founded by Hamilton during his tenure as the secretary of Treasury. This eminent financial expert was born out of the wedlock to a Scottish immigrant father and British mother. Hamilton’s father disassociated himself from the family when the political leader was still an infant. Alexander lost his mother during his teenage years and the tragedy deeply affected him. Struggling to make a living, he tried for an apprenticeship with a local businessman. It is said that this famous man lied about his age in order to grab this opportunity. Alexander used his dexterity to make an impression on his employers and in a few years’ time the import export firm decided to send Hamilton to the American colonies. The young lad who arrived on the American shores went on to become one of its most accomplished individual but his actual date of birth still remains an enigma.
