In curiously parallel lives, Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr were both orphaned at an early age. Both were brilliant law students, one at Princeton and the other at Columbia. Both worked for General Geroge Washington and both were war heroes. Each served in the newly formed government of the fledgling nation. Why, then, did these two face each other at dawn in a duel that ended with death for one and opprobrium for the other? Judith St. George brings together the lives of two complex men who played major roles in the formation of the U.S. in this biography.
