Today is the 212th anniversary of famous Burr-Hamilton Duel.
Burr was shot on 7/11 but didn't die until 7/12.
Aaron Burr=45, 108
Alexander Hamilton=176, 77
Hamilton dies 184 days after his 47th Bday in 1804.
Interesting too he died from a duel using Wogdon Pistols.
The duel took place in Weehawken, New Jersey.
Weehawken, New Jersey=219, 84
The Duel happens on the 193rd day of 1804.
We just got this story the other day as well in regards to Hamilton the very popular Broadway Musical that came out in 2015.
I could care less who plays these characters, but interesting that Burr and Hamilton are both white guys. The Musical has a Puerto Rican and Black guy portray them. Just interesting to me in light of the Racial divide in the media.
