George Washington’s nomination of Alexander Hamilton, from Congress in the Archives. We love what’s happening from the latest Tumblr from the National Archives.
On September 11, 1789 George Washington nominated Alexander Hamilton to be the first Secretary of the Treasury. The Senate approved the nomination that same day. Hamilton resigned as Secretary of the Treasury in 1795.
