July 11, 1807

On this date the U.S. Vice President, Aaron Burr, participated in a duel with Alexander Hamilton. Thus ended Alexander Hamilton's political career. And you know, life.

It didn't do much for Burr, either, career-wise.

We should bring back dueling. It's a dream of mine...

Dueling and stockades... two worthy additions to todays penal system.
