New London in New London County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
Secretary of Treasury 1789-1795
Father of the U.S. Coast Guard
Soon we were at sea, serving our country as commissioned officers, absorbing heritage and tradition from the Long Blue Line we'd joined, and carrying out our duties enforcing the laws and treaties of our Nation in times of peace and conflict. Decades later, after successful careers in our Coast Guard and other professions, we return once again to the place where those journeys began, to honor Alexander Hamilton.
We ardently hope this monument, placed before the hallowed hall that bears his name, will foster future generations' understanding and appreciation of his perseverance
