Nevis to Boston

This post is submitted to Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end in 100 words or less. My story follows the picture prompt below.

He’s come a long way since leaving this picturesque island of Nevis. The horrors of the enslavement of the natives will never entirely fade away. Even in his new country he will be surrounded by an enslaved population. But this time they will be his. This time he will be the master. Little did he realize what a history he would create in his new world. An acceptance into King’s College; a hero of the Revolutionary War; author of the Federalist Papers; involved in a famous dueling battle; and first Secretary of the Treasury.
