The Burr-Hamilton Duel as Told in the Original Documents

Engaging overview with first-person accounts of America's most infamous duel

The Broadway sensation Hamilton has sparked renewed interest in the historical figures of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. This closely annotated thread of documents provides a riveting account of the lead-up to and aftermath of their disastrous duel. From the summer of 1804, we have the fiery correspondence between Hamilton and Burr, notes and accounts from their seconds-in-command, and other documents that provide an immediate sense of the personalities and times. The introduction and conclusion provide a concise and informative perspective on the parallel lives of Hamilton and Burr and of the duel's lasting impacts on American history. This is the perfect summary of the events that inspired the hit musical—a great resource for teachers and students and the perfect gift for history buffs.
