Dueling "Founding Fathers"
  • CNN.com - Famous Burr, Hamilton duel to be reenacted - Jul 8, 2004

    I'm reading about this right now in Founding Brothers, by Joseph J. Ellis, a book built around the premise that all of these men knew each other, and that USAmerica and its Constitution were born out of their relationships and conversations. The duel between Hamilton and Burr seems to be the exception to the rule that they admired each other as individuals, even though disagreeing so vehemently politically.
