Book - 2017
Rate this:
Written by Hamilton himself to confess to the affair he conducted with Maria Reynolds, Alexander Hamilton: Adultery and Apology is Hamilton's attempt to defend and rationalize his misdoings, and ultimately salvage what was left of his reputation.

The pamphlet was originally published in 1796 after accusations of the adultery arose. This personal exposé reveals a man, whom the public initially revered as a politician and Founding Father, as a flawed human-being. Within these documents Hamilton describes his exploits in impeccable detail and languid prose, at the risk of tarnishing his public image, to prove to the public that he had nothing to hide.

With a new foreword by Robert Watson, presidential scholar and author of Affairs of State , delve into this exquisite, essential account of history's most scandalous love affairs.
