Though Alexander Hamilton is most associated with New York, he has many strong connections with New Jersey. When Alexander Hamilton first arrived to what would soon become the United States, he moved to New Jersey for preparatory school before college. He spent a great deal of the Revolutionary War in New Jersey, including three winter encampments with George Washington. During one of those winter encampments, he courted and became engaged to his future wife.

Later in life, he also helped found the city of Paterson and create the country's first planned industrial city. Hamilton also oversaw troops in New Jersey during the Quasi-War. And, perhaps most famous of all, it was in Weehawken that Alexander Hamilton met Aaron Burr at the dueling grounds and received the gun shot wound that ended his life.
