Dear Reader,

Today's topic is inspired by both the recent Disney+ streaming release of the Hamilton movie, and the upcoming anniversary of the Hamilton v. Burr duel, which took place on July 11, 1804.

Have you watched the Hamilton movie yet? Are you going to? I saw the musical three times (loved it each time) and I'm sure I will see the movie sometime this summer, but I haven't yet signed up for Disney+.

See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

Aaron Burr

Aaron Burr Jr. (February 6, 1756 – September 14, 1836) was the third Vice President of the United States (1801–05), serving during President Thomas Jefferson’s first term. Despite his successful career as a politician and lawyer, Burr is frequently remembered for killing his political rival Alexander Hamilton in a duel (1804), and for his (unrelated) arrest on charges of treason in 1807.
