Few men have influenced the United States more than Alexander Hamilton–without him,  the United States as it is today would simply not exist. Although he was born into  poverty in a remote Caribbean colony of Holland, Alexander Hamilton eventually made  his way to the American colonies, where he rapidly emerged as one of the most  influential of the nation's Founding Fathers. Hamilton served his country in many ways:  he fought in the  American Revolution  against the British; led the efforts to reform the  inadequate Articles of Confederation; helped design the American government as  outlined in the Constitution; and even secured its ratification by writing the Federalist  Papers. Hamilton also served as the country's first and most influential Secretary of the  Treasury under George Washington. What's more, Hamilton accomplished all of these  tasks over the course of just twenty years.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
