American Experience: The Duel
Media: 1 VHS(s)
Duration: 1h 0m
OPB Production: No
Close Caption: No
This fascinating documentary examines the bizarre circumstances that prompted the Vice President of the United States and a former Secretary of the Treasury, two of the most famous politicians of their time, to square off and shoot pistols at each other on the "field of honor." Almost everyone knows that Aaron Burr shot and mortally wounded Alexander Hamilton, but this production provides gripping insights into the intense, bitter rivalry between Burr and Hamilton. Coming from vastly different backgrounds, both men had distinguished themselves in the American Revolution, pursued careers as lawyers in New York City, and risen to prominent roles in the early American government. Using interviews with historians and re-creations that are beautifully filmed, this documentary does a fine job of telling a tragic tale that destroyed two lives and changed the course of history.
