I HOPE THE MUSICAL WILL INSPIRE AN ACTUALFAX DECENT AARON BURR BIOGRAPHY.

THERE ACTUALFAX IS A DECENT TWO-PART ONE BY LOMASK, WHO LIKES BUT DOESN'T EXCUSE BURR. HOWEVER, IT CAME OUT IN THE 80'S AND IT'S OUT OF PRINT. SOME LIBRARIES AND USED BOOK DEALERS HAVE IT THOUGH.

I'm just starting this book about the notorious Aaron Burr. This isn't literature or anything, but the writing is competent and the subject is very interesting. At least up until the age of 24 or so, Burr is an extremely admirable person, smart, conscientious, a good friend, and he serves with distinction in the Revolutionary War.

This is the first volume (1979) of Milton Lomask's two-volume biography of Aaron Burr. It's well researched and sourced, but the writing is only average. The volume covers all facets (personal, political, etc) of Burr's life fairly well and with sufficient depth.

Burr's younger and more unpredictable years. Not so heavy as he grows from a young man to middle age. Good Read
