The Hamilton show was good, if only he had been more of a diplomat I think he would be remembered more fondly  than he is and probably have been one of the presidents (and lived longer too).  Particluarly poignant was his telling his son he had to defend his honor in a duel where his son, whom he had high hopes for,  lost his life.  Then a few years later he did the same thing.  For such a smart guy he just didn't have the common sense and diplomacy to avoid these affairs of honor.
