Most of you know about the duel that ended Alexander Hamilton’s life. Ya know, the one with Aaron Burr. (raises fist and shouts angrily) Aaron Burr!
But did you know Hamilton also got into a duel with a future President?
It’s true. It all started when Hamilton had an affair with someone and then paid her husband after the husband blackmailed him about it. Well later the husband got in trouble for financial fraud, and some in Congress investigated Hamilton’s connection to it. One of those who investigated Hamilton was future President James Monroe.
Jump ahead to 1797.
That summer, Hamilton’s possible connection to the financial fraud was published to the whole country, and Hamilton blamed Monroe for the embarrassment. The two sent angry letters back and forth, and there was even a personal encounter where things got tense. Long story short. Things escalated so much that Monroe was about to officially challenge Hamilton to a duel when someone stepped in to prevent that from happening.
So who stepped in to prevent Monroe from dueling Hamilton? Why no other than Aaron Burr himself.
