Event Location
Federal Hall National Monument
26 Wall Street, NYC

Historian and author William Hogeland, a contributor to Historians on Hamilton (Rutgers University Press, 2018), will speak on how Alexander Hamilton’s national financial plan worked, why the public remains generally unaware of the details, the extremes Hamilton was willing to go to in order to bring the plan about, and why his opponents (Jefferson, Madison and Gallatin) couldn’t fully dismantle it during 16 years of Republican administration. Talk will be followed by Q&A.

  1. Can’t make it to your NYC speech but am looking forward to your book. I’m most interested in the first central bank, it’s relation to the whiskey tax, and the model it set for the Federal Reserve Act and the income tax. Also interested in the stock market speculation that the first central bank fostered, especially William Duer’s role. I hope you will include information about the Hamilton/Duer relationship.
