Duel!: Burr and Hamilton’s Deadly War of Words

Out of stock
"As the sun rises on a July morning in 1804, two men stand ten paces apart on a New Jersey cliffside. One is Alexander Hamilton, a signer of the Constitution. The other is Aaron Burr, the vice president of the United States. They are risking arrest-and their lives-to fight an illegal pistol duel." Both Hamilton and Burr fought heroically during the Revolution, and both had worked for General George Washington. But a conflict between them led to a duel that only one survived. Note on history of dueling. Bibliography. Further reading. Full-color ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations.
