really liked it
bookshelves: history, biography

Nicely crafted use of primary source stuff including, most prominently, letters with Burr's daughter and his Hamilton & treason trial transcripts.

Sad life, misunderstood and too often villianized, Burr emerges as one of those figures who, but for the vagaries of life, could have have been so much more.
