A very good BIO book about Alexander Hamilton

This book tackles some heavy topics about Hamilton. The BIO of him impacted me to think what Alexander went through! This book has some disturbing violence that may scare young ones. When I bought this book, it is was everything I hoped for and more! Not for young kids; more for older teens!

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
