An Itemized List of 30 Years of Disagreements: LC Releases Hamilton Papers

He wrote his way out. The Library of Congress (LC) made the papers of Alexander Hamilton available for free online—a collection of about 12,000 items (he really did write like he was running out of time). The letters, legal papers, speech drafts, and other writings are presented in their original format on the LC’s website.

“Alexander Hamilton is certainly having his moment and I am so thrilled that people can learn more about him—actually read his descriptions of Revolutionary War battles, read letters to his wife, see the cross-outs in his draft of George Washington’s farewell address and so many other things. Sharing this history is what the Library is all about,” says Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden.

Man, the man is nonstop!
