Aaron Burr is a dangerous man, he is certainly not a good Vice President. And I feel that it is my duty to be against him.
Hamilton constantly talks bad about Burr behind his back, when Burr found out he was angry, he demanded that Hamiton take back what he said about Burr but when Hamilton refused, Burr challenged him to a duel and Hamilton accepted.
How dare he insult me behind my back, and in front of everyone, I will challenge him to a duel to end this!
July 11, 1804-Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton met at Weehawken, New Jersey at dawn where they brought a few people as witnesses to their accounts. A witness of Hamilton claimed that Alexander felt it was wrong to duel and that he purposefully fired away from Burr, this caused Hamilton to be struck by Burr's bullet. Leading Burr to win the duel since Hamilton later died.
Burr has won!
Yes, I have won the duel, my career and reputation will now be successful!
No, it can't be!
After the duel, Burr found that the people were angry at him and believed he was a murderer. He was trialed for murder but all charges were dropped from him. He ended up losing his career and reputation, he later "disappeared" and wasn't really seen since.
B-But...It was a fair duel....Oh no my career is ruined, everyone despises me!
