John Church Hamilton served in the armed forces and later emerged as a historian and biographer who successfully wrote a biography about his mother and father after many failed attempts by others. When he first wrote the biography of his father, all its copies got burnt while binding. He then edited his father’s collected writings under the authority of the Joint Library Committee of the United States Congress. The seven-volume authorized edition, The Works of Alexander Hamilton: Containing His Correspondence, and His Political and Official Writings, Exclusive of the Federalist, Civil and Military, was published by order of Congress in 1850–1851. Hamilton also wrote a biography in seven volumes, published between 1857 and 1864, titled Life of Alexander Hamilton: A History of the Republic of the United States of America. The work combined biography of his father with a history of the United States. He also wrote a comprehensive biography on the life of his mother which got published after the death of his mother.
