Fact of the Day: The Man on the Ten Dollar Bill

Most people don't know who this guy is even though they handled quite a bit of ten dollar bills in their lifetimes. His name is Alexander Hamilton and he was not President, but rather a Caribbean born and raised man who later helped the founding of America and became the first Secretary of the Treasury.  
Hamilton later helped destroy Vice President Aaron Burr's political career and that made Burr mad. So they had an old timey duel and Hamilton was killed.
