The story of the duel between Hamilton and Burr is one of the most famous stories within American textbook, yet very little explanation has been made as to the cause or the effect of the event. What leads up to this very duel is the result of Hamilton public attack on Burr; however, unlike other which was political, this one is personal. It is very important to understand the role of Hamilton “flamboyant [political] style” and Burr’s “lack of political principle”, something Hamilton would see as a very flaw of his character.
