"Steel City", "Hammy Town"
A city with a population of 500,000 in Southern Ontario.

Home of the first Tim Hortons and the Niagra Escarpment.

A city you would never have reason to visit, unless you are from Brant, Haldimand or Norfolk County. In that case you visit Hamilton to shop, go to college/university or party.

Ten dollar, founding father without a father. Got a lot farther by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter, by being a self-starter. By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter. And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away, across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up. Inside he was looking for something to be a part of. The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter.
Washington hires Hamilton right on sight, but Hamilton still wants to fight, not write. Now, Hamilton's skill with a quill is undeniable...
