Hamilton Vs. Burr, An Unending Rivalry
He's going to remember this for the rest of his life!
by Derek Morris
The feud began when Alexander Hamilton's father in law, Philip Schuyler, lost his seat in the senate to Aaron Burr.
During the Election of 1800, there was a tie between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. During the tiebreaker, Hamilton pressured everyone to vote for Jefferson.
Prior to the fateful duel, Burr planned on only injuring Hamilton, not killing the man.
Hamilton purposely shot the tree above Burr, as a warning shot, but Burr panicked and shot Hamilton in the chest, shattering ribs and damaging plenty of vital organs.
Hamilton was rushed to the home of William Bayard, a close friend to Hamilton, but he succumbed to his injuries on July 12, 1804.
