Alexander Hamilton
1/1757-6/1804 (Age at death: 47)

Alexander Hamilton took a significant part in the framing of our constitution, anonymously contributing to the Federalist Papers along with James Madison and John Jay. He went on to serve as the first Secretary of the Treasury and fashioned an American industrial policy that stood until the Reagan presidency in the 1980's. His life was claimed in a duel with Aaron Burr.
