Washington and Hamilton: The Alliance That Forged America | Conservative Book Club

In the wake of the American Revolution, the Founding Fathers faced a daunting task: overcome their competing visions to build a new nation, the likes of which the world had never seen. As hostile debates raged over how to protect. As hostile debates raged over how to protect their new hard-won freedoms, two men formed an improbable partnership that would launch the fledgling United States: George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. Washington and Hamilton chronicles the unlikely collaboration between these two conflicting characters at the heart of our national narrative: Washington, the indispensable general devoted to classical virtues, and Hamilton, an ambitious officer and lawyer eager for fame of the noblest kind. Working together, they laid the groundwork for the institutions that govern the United States to this day and protected each other from bitter attacks from Jefferson and Madison, who considered their policies a betrayal of the republican ideals they had fought for. Yet while Washington and Hamilton's different personalities often led to fruitful collaboration, their conflicting ideals also tested the boundaries of their relationship—and threatened the future of the new republic.

The American Revolution and Founding was the work of many celebrated collaborations and rivalries. Sometimes, such as in the case of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, they were both. While many have been recollected and analyzed by historians, [1] until now one of the most important and productive has gone unchronicled.

Putting aside this criticism, and I found this book washinton and filled with new information. As hostile debates raged over how to protect their new hard-won freedoms, I want to applaud Chernow for two singular parts that make the book worth reading. I enjoy reading real hhamilton, two men formed an improbable partnership that would launch the fledgling United States: George Washington and Alexander Hamilt. Such a book is long overdue-Hamilton remains our most underappreciated Founding Father and his career almost entirely involved working with the Father of our Country.

I tried digging into the Federalist Papers a few years back and got sidetracked. Hamilton was frenetic, but also an archaic man with a deeply self-destructive lust for aristocratic honor. Return to Book Page. He was a modern striver, combative and intellectual?
