  • 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.
