Alexander Hamilton, the magnet! You can count on his countenance to honor the ten spot, the Broadway stage, and your refrigerator.
Alexander Hamilton, Founding Father, was the very definition of a self-made man, one who pursued his dreams using his talents, coming to exemplify the American Dream. Hamilton was born of an unwed mother from the Caribbean, orphaned as a child, and educated in British North America. From his writings advocating rebellion he rose to become George Washington’s aide-de-camp in the Continental Army, coauthored The Federalist Papers, founded the Bank of New York, lead the Federalist Party, and served as the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.
The museum’s magnet features an adaptation of America’s favorite Hamilton portrait – his face on the $10 bill – which was in turn inspired by John Trumbull’s portrait of Hamilton, one of which is in the museum’s collection.
