Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, spent quite a bit of his time in Albany! Though modern sensibilities tend to sympathize with Hamilton, and his writings in The Federalist Papers helped usher in our form of government, during his lifetime his ideas were seen as controversial.
