Growing restless in his desk job, in Hamilton convinced Washington to let him taste some action on the battlefield. With Washington's permission, Hamilton led a victorious charge against the British in the Battle of Yorktown. The British surrender after this battle would eventually lead to two major negotiations in the Treaty of Paris between the United States and Great Britain, and two treaties signed at Versailles between France and Britain and Spain. These treaties and several others comprise the collection of peace agreements known as Peace of Paris, officially marking the end of the American Revolutionary War.
While serving as an adviser for Washington, Hamilton had come to realize Congress' weaknesses, including jealousy and resentment between states, which, Hamilton believed, stemmed from the Articles of Confederation. He believed that the Articles — considered America's first, informal constitution — separated rather than unified the nation. Hamilton left his adviser post in , convinced that establishing a strong central government was the key to achieving America's independence.

It would not be the last time that Hamilton worked for the U. In , Hamilton was appointed inspector general and second in command, as America geared up for a potential war with France. In , Hamilton's military career came to a sudden halt when America and France reached a peace agreement. After completing a short apprenticeship and passing the bar, Hamilton established a practice in New York City. The majority of Hamilton's first clients were the widely unpopular British Loyalists, who continued to pledge their allegiance to the King of England.
When British forces took power over New York State in , many New York rebels fled the area, and British Loyalists, many of whom had traveled from other states and were seeking protection during this time, began to occupy the abandoned homes and businesses. Hamilton defended Loyalists against the rebels.
In , Hamilton took on the Rutgers v. Waddington case, which involved the rights of Loyalists. It was a landmark case for the American justice system, as it led to the creation of the judicial review system. He accomplished another history-making feat that same year, when he assisted in founding the Bank of New York. In defending the Loyalists, Hamilton instituted new principles of due process.
Hamilton went on to take an additional 45 trespass cases, and proved to be instrumental in the eventual repeal of the Trespass Act, which had been established in to permit rebels to collect damages from the Loyalists who had occupied their homes and businesses. Hamilton's political agenda entailed establishing a stronger federal government under a new Constitution.

In , while serving as a New York delegate, he met in Philadelphia with other delegates to discuss how to fix the Articles of Confederation, which were so weak that they could not persist in keeping the Union intact. During the meeting, Hamilton expressed his view that a reliable ongoing source of revenue would be crucial to developing a more powerful and resilient central government. Hamilton didn't have a strong hand in writing the Constitution, but he did heavily influence its ratification, or approval.
In the essays, he artfully explained and defended the newly drafted Constitution prior to its approval. In , at the New York Ratification Convention in Poughkeepsie, where two-thirds of delegates opposed the Constitution, Hamilton was a powerful advocate for ratification, effectively arguing against the anti-Federalist sentiment.

His efforts succeeded when New York agreed to ratify, and the remaining eight states followed suit. When Washington was elected president of the United States in , he appointed Hamilton as the first secretary of the treasury. At the time, the nation was facing great foreign and domestic debt due to expenses incurred during the American Revolution. Ever a proponent for a strong central government, during his tenure as treasury secretary, Hamilton butted heads with fellow cabinet members who were fearful of a central government holding so much power.
It was Hamilton's belief that the Constitution gave him the authority to create economic policies that strengthened the central government. Jump to navigation. Alliances, we had always felt, were not our sort of thing. They would involve us in obscure quarrels and sordid rivalries which were none of our concern. They seemed to be both undesirable and unnecessary in view of our special geographic and political circumstances. The inaugural pledge of Thomas Jefferson was no less clear: "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations-entangling alliances with none.
It became more than a policy; it became an expression of a national point of view about ourselves and our place in the world, a view which contrasted the simple virtues of our Republic with the subtle and complex qualities some said corruptions of Europe. From until the Second World War, excepting only our relationship with Panama, the United States refused to enter into treaties of alliance with anyone.
