The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society


The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society (AHA Society) was established in 2011 to increase the awareness of and appreciation for one of our nation's most influential Founding Fathers - Alexander Hamilton. It was founded by a group of people who had recognized Alexander Hamilton's important contributions to the American narrative, yet felt he was excluded from his rightful place in the history books. They have since come together to build a sustained effort to bring Hamilton's story to the public.

The AHA Society is an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization. Our mission is to provide accurate information in dynamic ways to grow awareness about Alexander Hamilton and other important figures from the Founding era. 

Who is Alexander Hamilton?

Alexander Hamilton was the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury and developed the basis of America’s economic system. Hamilton also played a  major role in getting the US Constitution drafted and ratified. Additionally, Hamilton was a prolific author, lawyer, philanthropist, political philosopher, abolitionist, congressman, and solider (obtaining the rank of Major General).

Why should every American know about Alexander  Hamilton?  More than any other founder, Alexander Hamilton created the vision and foundations that established a strong and successful United States. The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society’s purpose is to share this understanding with others so that they will also recognize the extraordinary contributions of Alexander Hamilton in the creation of the United States' political and economic systems.
