Friday Crossword – Hamiltonian Edition

We haven’t done one of these in a while. Sometime contributor and fellow blogger Michael Newton inspired this puzzle about his hero, founding father Hamilton.

If you have a problem with the flash working for you, you may wish to use the static version. If you succeed in doing the puzzle, we’ve implemented a way for you to get credit for your efforts! (see the box on left)

Hamilton’s successor at Treasury was not “Gallatin,” as the puzzle implies (3 Across), but Oliver Wolcott, Jr. Hamilton resigned in early 1795 and Wolcott, his deputy, was appointed by Washington yo head the department . Albert Gallatin was Jefferson’s Treasury secretary, starting in 1801.

You are correct, Mr. Newton was kind enough to point that out as well. It should say – a successor.
