  • The Election has ended in a tie. The tie shall be resolved by the House of Representatives.
  • Both Jefferson and Burr received 73 electoral votes in the election of 1800. The winner of the election of 1800 was considered by many at the time to hold the future of the United States in his hands.
  • Hamilton- Burr is untrustworthy. He will run the country into the ground.
  • Federalist Alexander Hamilton, who was originally against Thomas Jefferson, urged voters to vote against Aaron Burr. This started a feud between Hamilton and Burr.
  • Burr- How dare he say I am untrustworthy! How dare he attack my honor!
  • Burr was enraged at Hamilton after he heard about what he had said about him. He pleaded with Hamilton to take it back, but Hamilton knew that if he took back his words, his career would be over.
  • The House eventually sided with Jefferson and Aaron Burr knew that this was because of Alexander Hamilton.
  • Jefferson will serve as the next president with Burr as his Vice- President.
  • Burr, the current vice-president challenged Hamilton to a duel. Hamilton knew that if he backed out of the duel, it would look like he had taken back his word so he thought the only thing to do was to duel unless he wanted to thow away his career.
  • You attempted to destroy my name. I challenge you to a duel.
  • During the actual duel, Burr thought Hamilton was actually gonna try and shoot him which rarely happened in duels. But instead Hamilton missed but Burr hit and wounded Hamilton. He died of his injuries the next day. Burr knew his career was over so he pretty much went off the grid for a while.
