Philip Hamilton

Philip Hamilton was the eldest of eight children of Alexander and Elizabeth Hamilton. Philip was sent to Trenton Boarding School in New Jersey at the age of nine, and later joined Columbia College, the same college where his father too had graduated. After graduation, he went on to study law. Unfortunately, his father’s hopes came to an abrupt end when Philip died as a result of a duel with George Eacker, who had made derogatory remarks about his father.
