Alexander started his revolutionary career at the age of 19 while in attendance at King's College where he started a "club" to train young men military tactics.
After establishing himself as a military intellectual, Nathanael Greene attempted to hire Hamilton, but Hamilton ultimately landed in General George Washington's command.
Hamilton's biggest military accomplishment is his involvement and command at the Battle of Yorktown, the battle that forced the British to surrender and eventually won the war.
Hamilton ended his military career after the American Revolution, passed the bar, and practiced law in New York. He worked as a defense attorney for Loyalist, citizens who supported the British control over the colonies.
