This day in history: Alexander Hamilton

Today is the birthday of Alexander Hamilton. A historical figure I consider a hero.

Hamilton is far more important than "that guy on the 10-dollar bill" or "that guy who died in that duel." Both things I have heard when I've mentioned being a fan of Hamilton.

Please go read Sheila's piece about him. Far more eloquent, more exuberant, and more detailed than I could say right now.
