Storyboard Text

  • Everyone, make sure you vote for Jefferson and not Burr.
  • Burr caught word that long time enemy Hamilton was the one who told people that Jefferson was the lesser of two evils. This was a big factor leading up to the duel between the two men.
  • I can't believe Burr is going to challenge me in a duel if I don't take back what I said. If I take back what I said, that could end my life in the political world.
  • Thanks for setting up this duel near Weehawken, New Jersey. This is just how I want to spend my day on July 11, 1804.
  • Hamilton, we are only here because you didn't take back what you said. You hurt my political rankings.
  • Burr took the first shot, and with that shot he killed his long time political enemy Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was killed by Burr just because Hamilton cost Burr from winning the election of 1800.
  • Hamilton will never be able to make me look bad again. I finally got rid of my enemy.
  • Burr met with James Wilkinson to form a plan to create their own empire, after Burr was charged with murder. Wilkinson was under fire for treason, and then turned Burr in for treason.
  • Let's try and get England to help us capture the Louisiana Territory, so you can lead the new empire Burr.
  • Burr was arrested and put on trial for treason. During this Burr released because of a problem. He fled to Europe, and then he came back to New York, but all charges were dropped for the murder of Hamilton.
  • Even though Hamilton and I had our differences, I think it was wrong of us to have a duel. We both got hurt. he died, and my life is ruined in the aftermath. I should have never said to have a duel.
