The Hamilton-Burr duel was an event so unprecedented in American history that it’s hard to believe it really happened. A duel between the sitting Vice-President and a former Secretary of The Treasury, that sounds more like the ending to a hit Broadway musical than actual history— but it did happen!
This DVD will be a great addition to any history class. Through interviews, first-person accounts, and dramatic reenactments, American Experience: The Duel explores this fascinating moment of American history. This PBS documentary does a fantastic job examining the decades of political drama that lead to the infamous duel, the event itself, and its lasting impact on our nation.
