Top Ten Founding Fathers of the United States
The Top Ten
Besides the kickass musical that was based on his life, Hamilton did some great things. He created the foundation for the banking system that we currently use, and he was a huge factor of America's victory in the Revolutionary War. However, as expected for such an ambitious man, he did make many mistakes. For example, he partook in the first major political sex scandal in the United States, which was an affair with a woman named Maria Reynolds that lasted about a year. He also pissed off New York senator Aaron Burr so much that he ended up in a deadly conflict with him. If you look past all his errors, you'll find that his personal life is extremely interesting to study. Many historians believe that he and fellow soldier John Laurens were lovers before his demise in 1782. Their letters were basically the 18th century version of sexting, with all of the dick jokes and flirtatious mannerisms. - Absolite
No. Hamilton did nothing great in his life. He barely fought in the war, he created the idea of a central bank, and the only reason people like him is because his overrated girly musical. Honestly deserved to get shot. - GreenDayFan21
He would have been a great President. A bit of a monarch, but nonetheless great.

His chin looks like a deformed sideways egg I don't like George Washington - Puppytart
Puppytart, wait... you don't like Founding Father, first president of the United States of America... because his chin looks weird? Correct me if I'm wrong but that sounds like a terrible reason.
While not the most morally sound person, James (nicknamed Little Jemmy) accomplished a ton.
-He wrote the Bill of Rights
-He's the Father of the Constitution
-He was the fourth president (the War of 1812 was bad but he tried his best)
-He implemented the 2nd national bank (Hamilton's ghost approved)
-He married Dolley Payne Todd, who brought us ice cream
And he probably did a lot more, but those are just off the top of my head. He was short, sickly, rather apathetic at times, but cared for his country and ultimately does not deserve to be forgotten (nor do the lives of the slaves who were forced to work on his plantation of Montpelier).
Father of the Constitution
More influential to the founding of Burr for sure. A musical has taken over history.
I don't know why he's on this list because he's not a founding father, but I can kinda relate to him (besides killing his best friend)
He killed Alexander Hamilton I like him. (My sister listenes to his songs 24,7
THIS GUY DOES NOT GET ENOUGH CREDIT HE WANTED TO END SLAVERY BUT HE DIED AND THEN HE couldn't IF HE HAD LIVED MAYBE OUR AMERICAN HISTORY WOULD BE DIFFERENT
