The "Alexander Hamilton" microbox is located on Pinney Beach, in Nevis, where Alexander Hamilton was born. Hamilton overcame his lowly birth (a bastard child of foreign birth) to become one of USA's most important founding fathers. Though he could never be president due to this birth place, he became a very powerful influence in his new country, and is reponsible for setting up the US banking system. Hamilton was killed in a duel with Aaron Burr, a tragic ending to a complicated life.
Get to Pinney beach, and find Sunshine's beach bar, next to the Four Season's resort. From Sushine's bar, follow the telephone poles to the right to the 3rd pole (near the Texas flag). The box is at back base of the 3rd pole, under 2 rocks.
