Alexander Hamilton's Cabinet: 1800

This committee will do a bit of historical revisionism and place Alexander Hamilton as the third president of the United States. We will be investigating issues of the time that would have come up under a Hamilton presidency including states rights versus the power of the central government, abolitionism, and many more. There will also be “crises” that the committee is informed of as the weekend goes on that the delegates will need to respond to.
