This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Alexander Hamilton. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Alexander Hamilton was a Founding Father of the United States, chief staff aide to General George Washington, one of the most influential interpreters and promoters of the U.S. Constitution, the founder of the nation's financial system, the founder of the Federalist Party, the world's first voter-based political party, the Father of the United States Coast Guard, and the founder of The New York Post.
As the first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton was the primary author of the economic policies of the Washington administration. Hamilton took the lead in the funding of the states' debts by the Federal government, the establishment of a national bank, a system of tariffs, and friendly trade relations with Britain. He led the Federalist Party, created largely in support of his views; he was opposed by the Democratic-Republican Party, led by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, which despised Britain and feared that Hamilton's policies of a strong central government would weaken the American commitment to Republicanism.
He died in a duel with Aaron Burr, then Vice President of the United States. When both men drew their guns and shot, Hamilton was fatally wounded, but Hamilton's bullet missed Burr.
Hamilton, injured, was brought back to NYC, where he died the next day, on July 12, 1804.
Though he never attained the highest office of his adopted country, few of America’s founders influenced its political system more than Alexander Hamilton. As secretary of the treasury Hamilton’s great achievement was funding the federal debt at face value, created by the American Revolution. He was responsible for creating the First Bank of the United States on the model of the Bank of England which established a sound financial footing for the newly created United States government.
He also played a significant role in generating Washington’s administration policy of unfriendly neutrality toward the French Revolution and in establishing a rapprochement with Britain.
