Do you have a $10 bill on you? Okay fine, I don’t carry cash either, but next time you get one, take a look at the portrait of Alexander Hamilton and ask yourself — how handsome is this guy?
Here are some non-political reasons to totally heart Hamilton:
- He’s super hot (yeah, that’s right, I said it)
- He knew a little something about sword fighting (although not enough to stay alive)***
- He’s the namesake of a NESCAC school (not one of the important ones, but still…)
- He inspired Lin Manuel Miranda to write this poem/rap (basically the best thing EVER):
***UPDATE: Yes, I got confused and thought he died in a sword duel and not a pistol duel. I’m blaming Hamilton’s famous quote: “When the sword is once drawn, the passions of men observe no bounds of moderation”***
