Storyboard Text

  • In the election of 1800, Burr was running for President against Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton was always going around town telling people not to vote for him.
  • Aaron Burr
  • Why is he saying that about me?
  • Aye, make sure you guys don't vote for Burr, he's a bad man.
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • I never was!
  • Alright sir!
  • Aaron Burr grew tired of Hamilton destroying his reputation. In order to save his reputation, he wrote a letter to Hamilton saying he was tired of him ruining his reputation, so he challenged him to a duel.
  • Is this well explained on what's going to happen?
  • He's going to payback for everything he's said about me.
  • As Hamilton was reading the letter, he realized how upset Burr was. As strong man, Hamilton knew that he couldn't put down the duel, because it would ruin him. As a good Christian, he knew he couldn't fire directly at him, which worried him.
  • Will I die in this duel?
  • Oh, no, I need to accept this duel, so people don't think I'm a weak man, but i know I can't shoot that man.
  • The duel took place on July 11th, 1804, at 7 A.M. at the battle grounds by Weehawken, New Jersey. The men were armed and ready for their duel.
  • Good morning, Hamilton
  • Shall we get this started?
  • uhh, Hello
  • The men brought seconds to witness the duel. Hamilton's second was Nathaniel Pendleton, and he also brought a doctor, Dr. David Hosack. Burr's second was William P. Van Ness. Hamilton fired first, but into the sky, not at Burr. Burr took that time to shoot Hamilton, which eventually killed him.
  • He's going to die!!
  • William P. van Ness
  • OMG, Burr shot Hamilton
  • Nathaniel Pendleton the the doctor
  • I can't kill that man
  • The duel ended, Hamilton was shot, and Burr was being charged for Murder. He couldn't take it anymore, from the crowds, so he grabbed his horse, and fled city, never to run an office again.
  • I can't take all this hate about Hamilton anymore, I need to leave somewhere far away.
