(This song is about Eliza waanting to be with Alexander again. It continually lapses from song to song, like Burn, Un du trois, That would be enough, and Who lives, who dies, who tells your story. It is a rather sad song. What makes it strange is that in the end, Eliza dies and joins her husband in heaven, which is happy and sad at the same time.)<p> ELIZA: I saved every letter you wrote to me. From the moment I read them, I knew you were mine, you said you were mine, I thought you were mine. Do you know what Angelica said when she saw your first letter arrive?<p> Time lapse...<p> ELIZA: Un du trois quatre sinc six set wi nuf.<p> PHILIP: Un du trois quatre sinc six set wi nuf.<p> ELIZA: Good! Oh, Philip, you have your father's mind, that is enough.<p> Time lapse...<p> If our son has even half your mind, that would be enough. That would be enough.<p> ENSEMBLE: Enough... That would be enough.<p> ELIZA: That would be enough.<p> Time lapse...<p> ELIZA: Have I done enough? When my time is up, have I done enough? Will they tell your story?<p> ENSEMBLE: That would be enough... Will they tell your story?<p> ELIZA: I can't wait to see you again.<p> PHILIP: Un du trois quatre sinc six set wi nuf...<p> ELIZA: You have your father's mind...<p> ENSEMBLE: It's only a matter of time...<p> Time lapse...<p> ELIZA: Now I can see you again.<p> Ensemble members pick up Eliza's dead body.<p> HAMILTON+ELIZA: We are together again. That is enough.<p> ENSEMBLE: Who lives, who dies, who tells your story. Enough... Enough.

The book lays out just the facts and doesn't speculate on Hamilton's private life or the nonsense that people say about it without any proof he just portrays the man for what he was and for what he did

It is very refreshing to read a very well researched book on a man who has been somewhat over shadowed by the other founders. I would highly recommend this for teachers and history buffs!!!

Although it was wonderfully well written, and had an awesome ending (not that Hamilton dying a horrible painful death is good or anything), it was severely biased against everyone except Hamilton, and made some sharp barbs at Madison and Jefferson which I didn't think were fair. Overall, I would give it to you to read, but please understand that the dude was human while you're looking into it.

Brookhiser's bio of Alexander Hamilton concisely details the political, professional, and personal life of this truly interesting character. While one of only two non-presidents to be displayed on our currency, Hamilton is often overlooked or misrepresented as a Founding Father. Brookhiser covers it all from Hamilton's roots in St. Croix, his education, his military service under Geo. Washington, his lawyering, his term as Treasury Secretary, and his famous duel with then Vice President Aaron Burr. Brookhiser's understandably fond feelings for Hamilton give the story a conservative slant, but I found it refreshing to not be interrupted by every historian¿s contrarian opinion on each and every issue. Brookhiser's work is an excellent tale about an interesting figure during a truly extraordinary time in our nation's history.
