Storyboard Text

  • Thomas Jefferson
  • And how will you do that?
  • A tie...how could this be?
  • Which one of your electoral pals forgot to throw away their vote?
  • By making outlandish public remarks of course!
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • Ha, ha! You're a loser.
  • I hate that Burr fellow. I will help yo win the presidency.
  • Aaron Burr
  • Seems a little fishy...
  • Who is Aaron Burr? What is he from the arctic, because I don't trust anyone who lives with a fox.
  • And I guess you don't know how to spell either a-aron.
  • Words said by characters from strip 2 and 3 were probably not said and are not historically accurate.
  • We need to come together to fight against people like Burr and to be united with a leader like Jefferson.
  • Alexander Hamilton's assistant (also referred to as his second
  • Since Hamilton attacked Burr with negative public and political remarks causing Burr's status to decline and causing him to lose the Election of 1800, Burr challenges to an honorable pistol duel.
  • There were at least seven total people, including a doctor, a judge, and Alexander and Burr's second (maybe rowers).
  • It was July 11, 1804, at 7 a.m when Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton met in Weehaken, New Jersey for their famous duel. Alexander Hamilton was shot. Both witnesses had different stories and Burr was charged with murder.
  • Aftermath Burr, charged with murder in two states, finished off his term as Vice President. Burr tries to start an empire in 1805, on land a part of the Louisiana territory (asked the English to help). This failed and Aaron Burr tried to start another empire in Spanish territory failing once more and was convicted of treason.
  • Opinion I think Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton's duel was a bit unnecessary. I think a deal involving money or an exchange with goods would have been the wiser and more democratic choice. Deals could have also been made privately so the men's egos and political careers were not at stake. The dueling practice at this time was probably not outdated considering the current state of the U.S, but the dueling practice was and always will be pretty dumb.
