Ya know Hamilton didn't really want to duel, but he couldn't recant the insult he was supposed to have dissed Burr with, and he wrote a letter explaining...which is maybe why Burr wasn't prosecuted, but it ruined his political career...he was indicted for treason though, got off obviously...as vice prez he has the honor of being our fjrst executive office impeachment..
He was a very complex man, as were a lot of the declaration signers, them wacky wig powder heads.

Ahh guddammit where are the guotes?!?!
Okay so blunts, musks and, staro guotes here " " " "." "..good lord on a tea cup do I gotta do everything!
Okay okay, so those three "quotes" above, they're there so shut up, anyway they got me to thinkin', yeah yeah yeah so shut up, anyway anyway, so so sayin' we romaticized duelists doin' that duelin' thing, that ain't right, we just glorified it.
Why hell there's enough pre '40's black and white movie footage alone to earn a Dueling Phd., be a Doctor of Dueling.
For real, they cover the entire historical spectrum (well til the 40's duh-uh), and many the "rules" that are used are hjstorically accurate for they''re place and time, and I suppose their place in time.

They were there, but you didn't comment so it makes it what we call a "blank post."
