Alexander Hamilton was a representative from New York and a signatory on the U.S. Constitution. Hamilton was the first Secretary of Treasury, taking the lead in funding debt from the war and the establishment of a national bank. He envisioned a strong central government and a vigorous executive branch. Hamilton experienced combat during the war and as a lieutenant colonel became George Washington᾽s chief staff aide. In 1804, Hamilton was killed in a duel with the sitting vice president, Aaron Burr.
