'Feb. 22, 2019—George Washington deserves to be celebrated in his own right, but I am going to devote this brief Washington’s Birthday post to the Washington-Hamilton alliance. The two men shared a vision of developing this vast country into a strong continental republic, committed to the “blessings of liberty” and technological progress. They would admit they didn’t achieve all they wished, or all that was necessary, but they got us off to a good start.
From their collaboration—for which the groundwork was crucially laid by Benjamin Franklin—the American System of Economics was born.
In this context, I highly recommend the book Washington and Hamilton: The Untold Story of the Extraordinary Alliance That Forged Our Nation and the Unlikely Duo Behind It. This book by Stephen E. Knott and Tony Williams was published in 2015, and I had the pleasure of reading it a couple years ago. After short discussions of the divergent backgrounds of the two men, the book follows their collaboration from the Battle of New York through to the period of the Quasi-war with France (1798-99), when Washington died.
In their postscript, Williams and Knott emphasize the teamwork between the two men, concluding that Washington’s “emotional intelligence” and Hamilton’s genius at the “science of politics” led to a team which was greater than the sum of its parts. Clearly Hamilton and Washington did not always agree on how to achieve their common goals of building a strong continental, technologically progressive republic in which slavery would be abolished, but the bonds which they forged during the Revolutionary War ran deep. Their ties were especially close during Washington’s second administration, Williams and Knott write, when the Jeffersonians unleashed their newspaper filth against President Washington, as well as Hamilton.' - By Nancy Spannaus
