Alexander Hamilton

This week's episode is about Atlanta's very own Alexander Hamilton. Born enslaved and then later served in the Union Army, he moved his family from Eufaula, AL to Atlanta, GA and created a successful contracting business. His son Alexander D. Hamilton soon took over operations and then eventually a grandson, Alexander Hamilton Jr. (confused yet?). Join us as we discover this incredible story and learn all the buildings and homes that are still standing in our city.
