don't know much about history

I have long admired Alexander Hamilton. His vision of America was far sounder than Thomas Jefferson's, and his work as the first Treasury Secretary put the new nation on a sound financial basis. He believed in promoting American industry and a federal government role in infrastructure, again in contrast to the Virginia Founders.

But he never became president. And it shocks me to read this release from Groupon trying to honor Hamilton on President's Day. Did they stop teaching history when Millennials went to school? Or did they just stop learning because they were too busy playing with their electronic devices?
