In 1804, Aaron Burr was running for governer of New York and Alexander Hamilton made Burr lose his bid for governer because he distrusted him and always tried to keep him away from power. This started a negotiation for a duel.
Let's have a duel!
On July 11, Hamilton and Burr row across the Hudson River to a dueling ground in Weehawken, New Jersey.
Burr shot Hamilton twice, hitting his abdomen, liver, and spine. Hamilton is brought home and dies the next day.
After the duel, Burr is charged with murder in both New York and New Jersey. He will always be remembered as the guy who killed Alexander Hamilton.
