Could the scandalous culmination of the bitterest rivalry of all Founding Fathers really be the reason the new democratic government of the United States survived?

Join us for this special presentation in commemoration of the 220th anniversary of Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton’s duel in Weehawken, New Jersey. Dr. Jason Opal (Dean and Director of the Ohio State University’s Mansfield Campus) will join Mansion staff to discuss the impact of the battle between United States Senator Burr (second husband of our own Eliza Jumel) and Secretary of the Treasury Hamilton on an emerging political system in post-Revolution America.
