The guy on the right is Alexander Hamilton and the guy on the left is Aaron Burr. They do not like each other at all.
Burr is a dangerous man that ought not to be trusted!
The rivalry between the two came to a head in 1804 when Hamilton ruined Burr's attempt to gain re-nomination for Vice President as well as his bid to win the governorship of New York. Burr responded by challenging his enemy to a duel, an invitation Hamilton felt compelled to accept.
Hamilton shot first, but he missed. Burr shot next and hit him in the lower stomach. He was definetely looking to kill or hurt Hamilton
