Up until the evening of July 10, 1804, Alexander Hamilton was in the position of having to accept what would soon be the sealing of his fate. Throughout his life, Hamilton achieved major accomplishments for America, and also for himself. He is known for being a military hero in the Revolutionary War in which he also served as aide to George Washington, who later appointed him as the nation's first Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton was also a Federalist leader and the paramount author of The Federalist papers which advocated a strong central government. On the opposite end of the spectrum was Aaron Burr, an Anti-Federalist best known for serving as 3rd Vice President under Thomas Jefferson from 1800-1804.
The Federalists and Democratic-Republicans almost never agreed about anything. The founders of the parties had ideas about how to run the country that were so different that they had to create two separate political parties. They disagreed on almost every topic they discussed, but some major feuds were about whether our economy should rely on manufacturing or agriculture, our federal government should be led by wealthy or average people, our federal government should be stronger or the states should have more power, and what country we should support during the French revolution. The founder of the Federalist Party was named Alexander Hamilton. He was born in the West Indies and raised on a Caribbean island called St. Croix.
During the late 16th century an unspeakable event, of war and bloodshed brewed in the eastern coast of North America.

About miles south on the coast of Nevis, a small bastard child was born. With an absent father and a late mother the boy was orphaned. But this abandon, insignificant, Illegitimate child somehow could change the fate for the rebels of the war, and help build a great nation on the ashes of a bloody revolution.
Joseph Campbell writes, “And each who has dared to harken to and follow the secret call has known the perils of the dangerous, solitary transit: A sharpened edge of a razor, hard to traverse, A difficult path is this—poets declare!”. (Campbell 20). A double-edged sword is something that can exhibit both favorable and unfavorable aspects. In terms of a story, it is the force that works to help, but at the same time inhibit the hero.
“Act your age,” a common reprimand we have all heard or been told at one point in our lives. Many people believe that getting older guarantees a higher level of maturity. However, someone’s maturity does not depend on their age, but rather on their environment and mentality. Not all children are raised in a perfect and loving family; some children are forced to “grow up” faster due to difficult family situations. Children are heavily impacted by the environment they were raised in, for it affects people’s mind psychologically, thus causing different levels of maturity in each individual.

Adaptations are palimpsests, for example, in the Harry Potter films they take from the books that Ginny is in love with Harry and all the girls want to be her friend, however in the films she is mainly
