Alexander was left speechless. He had never heard of this man before in his life. But his life certainly sounded interesting.
‘Where can I read more about this guy?’ asked Alexander.
‘Well, historian Ron Chernow wrote a book about him, which is what I read,’ said John.

Alexander Hamilton is a playwright living in New York City. He has been mildly successful with his sort-of-but-not-quite biographical musical In the Heights in which he plays Puerto Rican bodega owner Lin-Manuel Miranda. One day, he hears on the news that the guy on the ten dollar bill is changing from president James Monroe to someone that Alexander had never heard of-a random guy, an immigrant from the Caribbean who wrote his way out of poverty to become the nation's first Secretary of the Treasury, only to die in his late forties in a duel. Usnavi de la Vega. Surely this wouldn't be the start of a seven year obsession to turn this astonishing man's life and accomplishments into a hip-hop musical...
