Psychobiography with Dr. Gail Saltz: On Alexander Hamilton with Richard Sylla


Dr. Saltz interviews Richard Sylla, author of Alexander Hamilton: The Illustrated Biography, who shows us the incredible story of the founding father who made America modern and became the toast of Broadway. An immigrant from the West Indies, Hamilton played a crucial part in the development of the new nation, playing influential roles in the Revolutionary War, establishing the Constitution, writing The Federalist Papers and modernizing America’s fledgling finances. Sylla and Dr. Gail Saltz will discuss the flesh-and-blood Hamilton — student, soldier, lawyer, political scientist, finance minister and politician.
