About this Item

272 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.9in.Trinity: The Burrs versus Alexander Hamilton and the United States of America will be the first book to draw on unreported documents and genealogical information to reveal an unprecedented look into the relationships of Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton, Trinity Church Corporation and the Loyalists of Manhattan Island. Author Alan J. Clark shows in new perspective the battles and intrigues leading beyond the American Revolutionary War. With the melding of genealogy and timeline analysis Clark examines some of the intriguing ciphered letters of Aaron Burr to his daughter Theodosia, and looks again at Burrs curious and complex war time exploits to determine where his Loyalist tendencies actually began. Clark further examines the land leases then traded prior, during, and after the war as speculation, or possibly as rewards from the English Crown for services performed in its favor in the colonies primarily through the Corporation of Trinity Church. The economics of early Manhattan and the Atlantic colonies were bolstered by the complex and secular behavior of the Corporation of Trinity Church acting as land bank for the Loyalists to the Throne of England. Clark appears to fill in the gaps in many recently published tomes by delving deeper into the actions of Burr and Hamilton, examining their extensive familial connections and behaviors to arrive at a complex web of intricacy bringing to life American History at its most personal level. This book does not reiterate the well worn paths of American History. Instead, it brings a crisp new approach that makes sense of seemingly insignificant, disjointed and inconsistent stories of the early history of our country. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781420846386

About the Author:

Author, Alan J. Clark, M.D., is a graduate of the class of 1968 from Yale University with classmate, President George W. Bush. He graduated with the honor of cum laude from The Phillips Exeter Academy; among alumni are authors Gore Vidal and Dan Brown. He had the pleasure of knowing his parents'''' friend Marjorie Mosser Ellis, niece and secretary of author Kenneth Roberts, whose book Arundel antedates the account by Clark of the American attack on Quebec in 1775.A career board certified ophthalmologist Clark interned at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and completed his residency at the Albany, N.Y. Medical Center receiving his medical degree at Yale Medical School. An early proponent of antioxidant therapy during his career, Clark''''s practice included many original surgical techniques including temporal wounds to reduce astigmatism in cataract surgery and he embraced early use of outpatient surgery, phacoemulsification and scleral tunnel incisions into his community.Encouraged to publish the first enumeration of the casualties of the first battle of the French and Indian Wars, the Battle of Lake George in l755, Clark went on to publish numerous accounts of Loyalist and American ancestors during the American Revolution and War of 1812, both of soldiers and sailors.This current work represents the first attempt by any author to completely decipher the letters of Aaron Burr and his family and contemporaries revealing a totally new interpretation of the role of American Loyalists during the formation of the United States.
