TIME introduces the Heroes of History series-life stories of extraordinary Americans, illustrated in full-color. Think you know everything about Alexander Hamilton? Think again! The original immigrant success story brought to life in the musical Hamilton is every bit as amazing and controversial now as it was in the 18th century. TIME tells the whole story of the nation's first Secretary of the Treasury-a founding father with a complicated and ultimately tragic story that didn't end with the duel in Weehawken. Young adult readers ready to look beyond the "Who Was" series deserve a collection of biographies all their own with the details, nuance, and depth they crave. With dozens of reproductions of artworks, artifacts from the period, photographs, and illustrations created to bring the subject alive, this first book in the new series, Heroes of History, captures "the quintessential immigrant success story" and brings his life and chaotic, revolutionary times into fresh focus.
