Alexander Hamilton was a great man that will be remembered for being a great major general of the armed forces of the United States of America. As well as the secretary of the treasury. In 1769, at twelve years old he had a job as a clerk in a general store and Alexander dreaded spending the rest of his life there. He wanted something more for his future. He wished for a war to occur. He wanted to prove himself to be more worthy then a clerk. To his thinking, only some brilliant and heroic act on the battle field would give me a chance to achieve his hopes. He seemed to be doomed to a life of clerking.

From the start of creating this treaty the founding fathers were greatly split into two camps. The Federalist led by Hamilton were seen as pro-British supporters and the antifederalist were being led by Thomas Jefferson. (Milestones: 1784–1800 - Office of the Historian) This treaty was increasingly becoming a partisan issue that was plaguing our young nation. Though the Federalist were being considered pro-British Jay himself a Huguenot was not completely pro-British. As Combs says, “Yet Jay’s dislike of France did not make him pro-British at this time. His attempts to mold an anti-British alliance with Spain is ample evidence of that” (Combs 18) He was not completely pro-British though many were making him out to be. The founding fathers had
Hamilton felt that instead of having a state government, the political power should all go to the national government. He believed that being one with union and not having any states at all would be best for the country. He wanted to get rid of state rights and the states itself but he knew would never happen due to the amount of people who would oppose to that. Hamilton stated that the best government system is monarchy and wanted to lean towards that with his statement. So, he wrote a proposal stating that most of the power should go to the national government but still allow the states to still obtain some of their rights. That’s why he thought that the new Constitution was needed.
Hamilton writes about concerns that the Constitution would take away authority from state judicial systems. He clearly states in Federalist #82 that the states will “retain all pre-existing authorities which may not be exclusively delegated to the federal head.” The state courts will keep the same powers they had with the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution will not render that at all. Hamilton writes that only specific powers, listed in the Constitution, are granted to the new federal government and states are denied of them.

I grew up in Hamilton,Mississippi, a small town located in the country. In Hamilton we only have a few stores ; dollar general, sprint mart, Fred's pharmacy, etc. Hamilton may be a small town but it has the most drama and it is full of news and entertainment. The area where most of the drama is a community called "the hills" which is where I live. The hills is an area full of black people, who sometimes get along and sometimes fight each other.
