Jeff discusses the life, ideas, and legacy of Alexander Hamilton with Stephen Knott, formerly of the United States Naval War College and a recognized Hamilton scholar. Although Americans have been reminded of Hamilton as a result of the popular musical, what’s the truth behind the songs? How did he rise to prominence, living a classically American story of humble beginnings and lofty achievements? What role did he really play in the War for Independence, and the Constitutional Convention? And finally, how are his ideas about foreign policy, economics, and presidential power still relevant today?Host: Jeff SikkengaExecutive Producer: Greg McBrayerProducer: Jeremy GyptonApple Podcasts: https://tinyurl.com/3jcrp73mGoogle Podcasts: https://tinyurl.com/2p9n67aSpotify: https://tinyurl.com/ysw8xjtkAmazon Music: https://tinyurl.com/ytp6jwnzRSS Feed: https://tinyurl.com/2p9u2bvePodvine: https://podvine.com/podcast/the-american-idea
