Hamilton was originally pro-british rule. He was influenced by many to patriotism. One of these people being Hercules Mulligan.

Hercules Mulligan also saved George Washington twice.

He married the niece of Admiral Sanders of the Royal Navy. (Who was on the British side.)

John Laurens, Lafayette, and Hamilton never met until they were high ranks.

 

 

After his exchange, John Laurens was appointed by Congress as an envoy to procure supplies and money from France. He sailed from Boston in February, 1781, and arrived at France in March. Laurens then headed for Paris, to carry out his task of assisting Benjamin Franklin in obtaining loans from France. After six weeks elapsed with no results, the restless Laurens called on the French minister of foreign affairs, the comte de Vergennes. He made demands for money, weapons, uniforms, and ammunition for the American cause. Vergennes replied, “Colonel Laurens, you are so recently from the Head Quarters of the American Army, that you forget that you are no longer delivering the order of the Commander-in-Chief, but that you are addressing the minister of a monarch.”

Not to be denied, Laurens ignored this dismissal by Vergennes, and went directly to King Louis XVI. At a reception where individuals were briefly brought before the king to merely bow and pay their respects, the bold Laurens apparently directly approached the king. Despite ruffling some feathers, Laurens was eventually able to secure a ten million livre loan from the Dutch, underwritten by the French. He sailed back to America in August 1781, with money and two ships loaded with military supplies.

tl;dr: Laurens wanted supplies so he went to the king and got a lot of stuff.

 

Hamilton and Laurens were probably gay.
