Alexander Hamilton

1755 CE – 1804 CE

Most of the founders were wealthy and came from the colonial aristocracy.  Hamilton came from neither, but rose through force of will, political drive and acumen to the highest echelons of power.  He was born in the Caribbean and historians place his birth on January 11, in either 1755 or 1757.
