One Day University – Hamilton vs Jefferson: The Rivalry that Shaped America
Location: University of Denver – Sturm Hall
Address: 2000 E. Asbury Ave, Denver, CO
Hamilton is experiencing a well-deserved revival. Often forced to take a back seat to other Founding Fathers, his vision of America as an economic powerhouse with a dynamic and aggressive government as its engine has found many followers. Hamilton helped get the Constitution ratified, helped found the Federalist Party, and served as the first Secretary of the Treasury. An orphan born in the West Indies, he was like a son to George Washington and perhaps should have been like a brother to Thomas Jefferson.
