Storyboard Text

  • In the election of 1800, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr are the Candidates to be elected as President. A tie had struck between the votes and when the House met to discuss election, Burrs rival, Alexander Hamilton vocalized his support for Jefferson and dissaproval for Burr. Jefferson ended up winning...
  • Hmmm, Jefferson or Burr
  • Vote for Jefferson, not Burr!!
  • Dear Mr. Hamilton, Your actions have been ruining my achievements and I wont let that happen! I blame you for making me lose the Election between Jefferson! It also seems like all the mistakes I've made you're always there some how supporting them and making them happen! I've had enough of it. So, you either tell the public that what you've said about me is wrong.. or I challenge you to a duel! If the duel occurs, meet at Weehawken, New Jersey at dawn. -Aaron Burr
  • Annnnd Done! This oughta show Hamilton!
  • Dear Mr. Burr, I must say, It's not my fault you are not trustworthy. I am not the reason why people don't trust you. Besides from that, I will not be taking back what I said, and if I do, that will make me look bad and people would think I was a liar, and I'll have you know I'm no where near that. So, tomorrow at Weehawken, dawn. You're on. -Alexander Hamilton
  • I must go get prepaired for the duel!
  • Apparently...Alexander had missed on purpose. According to the internet, Hamilton shot his gun first, but he shot a little above Burrs head, missing on purpose. Plus, Hamilton had served in the war and had, well should have had, perfect aim. In the end, Aaron had defeated Hamilton in the duel.
  • William P. Van Ness, Burrs Second
  • fire!
  • Man Directing Steps To Be Taken
  • Dr. David Hosack
  • Nathaniel Pendleton, Hamiltons Second
  • The nation was outraged by the killing of a man as important and legendary as Alexander Hamilton. Butt was then charged with murder in New York and New Jersey. Burr, still vice president, returned to Washington, D.C., where he finished his term immune from prosecution.
  • Why!..I shouldn't of killed Hamilton! Now, the nations outraged, but I had one fair and square! I must say....I do regret having that duel...
  • In my opinion, I think that Hamilton had a right on his political belief. Though, It had made Burr lose to Jefferson, Burr shouldn't have taken it so far for it to lead to a duel. Yes, the two men did have their ups and downs amongst each other but this shouldn't have gone so far that it had lead to a duel. Overall, the duel was uncalled for and shouldn't have occurred. This situation was barbaric because it was caused by hatred towards one another which was cruel, but it was also outdated. I feel it was outdated because nowadays, if two men/woman got angry at each other, they wouldn't challenge one another to a duel.
