Alexander Hamilton helped found the first national bank. He also founded the U.S Mint which soon became the U.S coast Gard. He also helped to ensure the constitution. He was also the first secretary or treasury. He became one of Washington’s most trusted advisors. His responsibilities were to draft letters to congress, state governors and the most powerful generals in continental army. Some of Alexander major reports when he was secretary were the `Report on Manufactures’, ‘Report on a National Bank’ and `Report on the Public Credit’. He also participated in Washington’s revolutionary war. After the war he co-wrote the “Federalist” which was a primary source for the Constitutional interpretation. Alexander joined a New York militia company. He achieved the ranking of lieutenant in `The Heart of Oak’. He successfully led a raid for British canon in the battery, capturing it. In 1774 he wrote `A full Vindication of the Measure of Congress" which helped the U.S separate from England.
