REVIEW: Alexander Hamilton by Jonathan Hennessey

Book Blurb: Alexander Hamilton was one of the most influential figures in United States history--he fought in the Revolutionary War, helped develop the Constitution, and as the first Secretary of the Treasury established landmark economic policy that we still use today. Cut down by a bullet from political rival Aaron Burr, Hamilton has since been immortalized alongside other Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson--his likeness even appears on the ten-dollar bill. In this fully-illustrated and impeccably researched graphic novel-style history, author Jonathan Hennessey and comic book illustrator Justin Greenwood bring Alexander Hamilton's world to life, telling the story of this improbable hero who helped shape the United States of America.

My Review: I haven't really read or done any research for any of the founding fathers but the cover of the book intrigued me. The artwork is beautiful and I enjoyed reading about Alexander Hamilton's life. I wouldn't mind reading about more of the founding fathers in the future.

Rating: ★★★★☆
