CuteEverything More than 1 year ago
With the winning Broadway show, his restored $10 bill, and more, Alexander Hamilton is certainly having a moment right now. Alexander Hamilton: The Making of America is a well-written and engaging young-adult telling of his life’s story helps make clear how this orphan boy on a remote Caribbean island became president and more. It starts and ends with his famous duel, answering questions and providing context for the duel as it progresses. Well told, informative, and easy to read.
