113 Words1 Page
Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were two of the United States’ Founding Fathers. Both helped advise George Washington on many matters, and helped build this nation up from the ground. Their views, however, differed greatly, with two different plans for the growth of the United States. Alexander Hamilton was born to a single mother in the Caribbean. As he gained a reputation from his writing and advocating for American independence, he also became the captain of a New York Artillery company. With this new military position, he earned the attention of George Washington and began acting as a surrogate for Washington on matters such as dealing with the French military and intelligence operations.
