Summary
Burr is a portrait of perhaps the most complex and misunderstood of the Founding Fathers. In 1804, while surving as vice president, Aaron Burr fought a duel with his political nemesis, Alexander Hamilton, and killed him. In 1807 he was arrested, tried, and adquitted of treason. In 1833, Burr is newly married, an aging statesman considered amonster by many. Burr retains much of his poltical influence if not the respect of all. And he is determined to tell his own sory. As his amanuensis, he chooses Charles Schermerhorn Schuyler,a a young New York City journalist, and together they explore both Burr's past and the continuing poltical intrigues of the still young United States
