These days it seems everyone is singing the praises of Alexander Hamilton, but what.s the all the fuss about? After all, Hamilton was never a president, nor was he a beloved figure in his time. After rising from humble origins, he won powerful friends and made powerful enemies during his life, which ended in his infamous duel with Aaron Burr.
