Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America
523 S. Webster St.
Naperville, IL 60540
Features reproductions from the Gilder Lehrman Collection. The exhibition examines Hamilton's important role in the Revolutionary War and Early Republic periods. Follow Hamilton's an astonishing rise in five short years from an orphaned, 15-year-old West Indies immigrant to George Washington's war time aide. Never one to back away from a fight, political or otherwise, Hamilton fought his final duel at the age of 47 with Vice President Aaron Burr. Once the duel was over, Hamilton was found dead and Burr was wanted for murder. More than any other founder, Hamilton was a complex and controversial figure and a true visionary.
