Alexander Hamilton has long been considered to be one of the foremost of American Founding Fathers. Born in 1757 on the Caribbean island of Nevis, he moved to New York as a teen to further his education. Hamilton took an important role in the Revolutionary War as senior aide to General George Washington, and after the war was elected as a representative to the Congress of Confederation.

Hamilton was known for being in favor of a stronger central government. He was instrumental in influencing Congress to issue a call for the Philadelphia Convention in order to create a new constitution. One of Hamilton’s most important contributions was the primary authorship of the Federalist Papers, considered to be an indispensable document for interpretation of the US Constitution.

Hamilton was a nationalist who emphasized strong central government and successfully argued that the powers of the Constitution provided legal authority to fund the national debt. Hamilton served as the first Secretary of the Treasury and was instrumental in the creationof the US Mint. He was also fundamental in the development of friendly trade relations with England, and strongly supported the creation of a government backed Bank of the United States.


Hamilton continued political, legal and business activities in New York City, and was active in ending the legality of the international slave trade. Hamilton opposed the election of Aaron Burr in 1804. Burr took offense and challenged him to a duel, mortally wounding Hamilton.

The Montegrappa Hamilton Edition is an exquisite example of the pen maker’s art. Bringing together the finest Italian craftsmanship with a unique design featuring precious metal accents and two versions of striking artwork displayed on cap and barrel.
