Toward the end of 1786, Hamilton was elected to serve in the 1787 session of the New  York State Assembly. As an Assemblyman, Hamilton worked with several issues. He  continued to fight for the protection of loyalists against persecution and drafted  proposals to solve the economic crisis, but his main goal was to convince the other  legislators in the New York State Assembly to send a delegation to Philadelphia to  amend the Articles of Confederation. Hamilton's proposal was met with bitter opposition  from New York Governor George Clinton, who feared the power of a stronger national  government. In the end, Hamilton achieved only a half-victory: the Assembly agreed to  send a delegation to Philadelphia, but this delegation was made up of Hamilton and two  Clinton supporters.

    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.
