Storyboard Text

  • Don't vote for Burr! He is an unprincipled rogue!
  • Hamilton has a point! I'm going to vote for Jefferson instead.
  • I challenge you to a duel in Weehawken New Jersey on July 11th 1804!
  • Get ready
  • I don't want to do this but I have to.
  • My reputation is ruined. He wasted his shot but I fired.
  • It's a mortal wound doctor...
  • What have I done‽
  • I believe that engaging in a violent duel to maintain political honor is simply pointless. The judge of a politicians honor should be their actions and how they follow up on what they say and do. Showing up to an event where violence is the main purpose is not a good decision in any respect. Especially for a vice president. Alexander Hamilton's death was a waste of so much potential, as well as Aaron Burr's ruined reputation. Violent duels accomplish nothing and only have potential to make things worse.
