Great little story. The duel between these two is history. This film puts the whole thing into an informative, well made film. I enjoyed it.

Just saw this on the shelf and thought it would be interesting. It was! I had really mostly forgotten what this dual between Hamilton and Burr was all about. I also did not realize there were 2 versions of the actual events of that day. The DVD gives some really good background on each man as well.
