Diana Ross, Alexander Hamilton, & the Creation of the American Monetary System

A meditation on true worth

The Surrender of Lord Cornwallis, by John Trumbull, ca. 1820, Public Domain, Source: Wikipedia, Colors slightly amplified by the Author. Note: Alexander Hamilton is standing next to the horse on the lower right. The surrendering English guy may actually be Diana Ross, but some historians say she was actually at Fort Detroit that October, singing soprano in Don Giovanni.

Money is round, or at least in America.
No one knows why!
Oh, you thought you knew,
but really none of us
do.
