"John Church Hamilton was the fourth son of Major General Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton. When he was twelve, his father was killed in the now legendary duel with presidential candidate Aaron Burr. He was an avid historian, and published many books about his father’s life, including Life of Alexander Hamilton and a seven-volume history of the Republic.”
