Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton is the only non-president to be on the US. currency.  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison opposed Hamilton.  It is probably because he was chief/staff for General Washington.  He was Secretary of the treasury, which is probably how he got addicted to money.  He was born January 11, 1755, and he served in the American Revolutionary War.  He died on July 12, 1804.  Burr killed him in a duel.
