Aaron Burr vs. Alexander Hamilton

This storyboard does not have a description.
Aaron Burr is an evil politician. I take pride in successfully stopping him from becoming the Vice-president in 1796, stopped him from becoming the President in 1800 and stopped him from becoming New York's governor in 1804.
How dare you criticise my political career, attack and damage it, and ruin my reputation.
I will not be taking back what I said as it would make me look weak. I accept your duel challenge.
I challenge you to a duel on July 11, 1804, in Weehawken, New Jersey across the river. Or, you can take back all that you have said about me and my career and we can drop the duel.
I am ready to duel Burr. I have brought my second Nathaniel Pendleton and Dr. David Hosack.
Greetings, I am ready to win this duel. I brought my second W. P. Van Ness. We are to duel with flintlock pistols, you may shoot first.
Weehawken, New Jersey, July 11, 1804, 7 a.m.
I throw my shot.
Very well, now it's my turn.
"This is a mortal wound, doctor"
After Burr murdered Hamilton, he was never charged because of his Vice-President immunity. He later tried a scheme of capturing the Louisiana Territory to make a new country with James Wilkinson, but Wilkinson ratted him out. He was viewed as a treasonist, and he left to live in Europe. He later returned to New York as people forgot about him, and died quietly in 1836.
I can revive him, but he won't make it. He's done for.
