The Duel Between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr: The Musical and the Reality
Professor Henriques is “not throwing away his shot.” Starting with a look at Hamilton, the most talked about Broadway show in years, Professor Henriques examines the most famous duel in American history and examines if it is possible to make sense out of theÂ seemingly contradictory accounts of what actually happened.
