Our salute to the memory of Alexander Hamilton whose vision and energy made Paterson the first industrial city in America, and to his creation of the S.U.M. which made this very ground the cradle of industry. To this gallant statesman and to the working men and women who helped forge this great nation out of the wilderness, we are ever grateful.
