Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton is known as one of the great influences of the Industrial Revolution in America.  Alexander Hamilton had heard about how amazing the Industrial Revolution was over in England and he wanted it for the United States.  He favored the big businesses, industries and large factories.  Alexander Hamilton drafted a report titled, "Report on Manufacturers" in which he told Americans that there were bigger and better business and technologies that they needed to become involved in.  People listened to Alexander Hamiltion, however it was not until Samuel Slater and his cotton mill, that people realized how successful they could become.
