Aaron Burr was the son of Aaron Burr, Sr., the 2nd president of the College of NJ (Princeton) as well as the grandson of Jonathan Edwards. In 1769, at the age of 13, Burr enrolled at the graduating summa cum laude in only 3 years as a student of theology. He eventually switched his career track to study law.

He represented himself well in the American Revolutionary War serving under both Benedict Arnold and George Washington, achieving the rank of major. In 1800, Burr ran for the U.S. presidency with Thomas Jefferson. Because they each received the same amount of electoral votes, members of the House of Representatives were left to determine the winner. Alexander Hamilton's opposition to Burr gave the election to Jefferson.

The is best known for his duel with Hamilton that lead to Hamilton's death and Burr's political demise. Later he was charged with a conspiracy against the United States and was convicted.

Alexander Hamilton was a Founding Father of the United States, chief staff aide to General George Washington, one of the most influential interpreters and promoters of the U.S. Constitution, the founder of the nation's financial system, the founder of the Federalist Party, the world's first voter-based political party, the Father of the United States Coast Guard, and the founder of The New York Post. As the first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton was the primary author of the economic policies of the Washington administration. Hamilton took the lead in the funding of the states' debts by the Federal government, the establishment of a national bank, a system of tariffs, and friendly trade relations with Britain.

He died in a duel with Aaron Burr, then Vice President of the United States. When both men drew their guns and shot, Hamilton was fatally wounded, but Hamilton's bullet missed Burr. Hamilton, injured, was brought back to NYC, where he died the next day, on July 12, 1804.

Aaron Burr was in general disrepute after 1804 because of his political indiscretions and the fatal duel with Alexander Hamilton. His soaring ego, however, compelled him to undertake further schemes, when he conspired against the United States for a possible overthrow. Burr's exact aims are not clear today, but may have involved an effort to capture Spanish possessions in the Southwest or to engineer the secession of western states from the Union, or both.

One significant sidelight of the Burr trial occurred when Chief Justice Marshall subpoenaed Jefferson to testify. The president refused to do so, citing the independent nature of the branches of the government. Jefferson’s refusal was on the grounds that the Chief Justice had no power to do so since Jefferson represented the Executive Branch of the US government, on equal footing with the Judicial Branch of the US government. This became important in establishing the boundaries of each branch of government.
