Alexander Hamilton was born in the British West Indian island of Nevis sometime between 1755 and 1757. He served as George Washington's secretary and aide-de-camp during the Revolutionary War. He was a New York delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787. He organized the writing of The Federalist essays, enlisting John Jay and James Madison in the effort. From 1789 to 1795 he served as America's first secretary of the Treasury. A growing animosity between Hamilton and longtime political rival Aaron Burr culminated in a duel in 1804. Hamilton was fatally shot, and died the day after their encounter.
