The Alexander Hamilton Collection

A Show-Stopping Gathering of Highly Important Original Letters, Documents and Imprints

(or, the Genius, Passions, Foibles and Flaws of our Founding Fathers)

We are pleased to share a few highlights from our unique collection of more than 1,000 original documents. The Alexander Hamilton Collection tells the story of the orphan immigrant founding father who fought for independence, founded our financial system, and fostered a government capable of surviving internal factions and foreign foes.

Yes, Hamilton’s story includes hubris, infidelity, scandal, and tragedy. The Collection captures that and more within the wider arc of its time. Here are the bold and innovative ideas, original personal letters, historic reports and documents that, at the moment they were written, were changing the world. It contains hundreds of powerful documents from leaders, soldiers, citizens, and the press, written when the Revolutionary War and Founding were current events.
