All things western and more.
Did you know that in 1804 the Vice President of the United States--Aaron Burr--fought a duel with the Secretary of the Treasury--Alexander Hamilton--and killed him?
Yes, I knew this. Believe it or not, I learned it in high school!
You know I did too, Elizabeth, but the fact that they held such high offices went right over my head.
No, something else I didn't know! Hugs, Valerie
No reason you should know that one:)Hugs received and returned.
No Sandra I did not know, Sorry for the delay in replying.Yvonne.
No problem at all. Hope all is well.
News to me. A political disagreement taken too far?
I believe one disparaged the other.
I remember hearing about this in history class
What some current politicians would like to do now. As it was a duel, I suppose no charge was laid.
He was indicted for murder but got the heck out of Dodge before he got thrown in jail. At some point the charges were dropped.
I did! Even before seeing "Hamilton!"
Now that I DID know.
Yes, I knew this. I could never remember whom he killed until the Broadway hit “Hamilton” came into being.
I remembered it from school but Hamilton refereshed my memory :) xo
wow back in the day...
Definitely, way before everyone learned from the musical
Dirty works at the crossroads!!
Yes, I knew, but it never hurts to be reminded about history.Love,Janie
Wow!!!! Big Hugs!
