Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elizabeth Hamilton was the wife of Alexander Hamilton. She was born in Albany, New York, the second daughter of Philip Schuyler, a Revolutionary War general, and Catherine Van Rensselaer Schuyler, one of the richest and most political families in the state of New York. She was a sister of Angelica Schuyler Church. In spring 1779, Alexander Hamilton asked his friend John Laurens to find him a wife in South Carolina: "She must be young-handsome Sensible -well bred. . . chaste and tender; of some good nature-a great deal of generosity -In politics, I am indifferent what side she may be of-I think I have arguments that will safely convert her to mine-As to religion a moderate stock will satisfy me-She must believe in God and hate a saint. But as to fortune, the larger stock of that the better."show more
