This graphic novel/ biography grants readers access to the history and legacy of Alexander Hamilton. It takes us on the journey from his childhood in the West Indies, to his death in July 12, 1804, with a strong focus on the American Revolution and Continental Congress proceedings.

It gives reader's a view of the Founding Father's impact on our society and speaks to historical details such as, "New Money", and the "Law of Primogeniture."

Throughout this reading of the life of Hamilton, we are also introduced to many other historical figures. Among these are, Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, John Adams, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.

This book is heavily detailed in both graphic content by Justin Greenwood and language for that era by Jonathan Hennessey. The read is broken down into 22 segments and some of them contain flashbacks.

This historical piece matches a lot of text (history) to each graphic representation. I did appreciate the historical details and liked many of graphics, and the bubble placement worked well in many of the segments. I felt Washington's Retreat was very well detailed as you could see the anguish on the faces, while the withdrawing of troops occured.

If you are interested in a story that tells about early American history, and enjoy graphic novels, then this may be the book for you.
