This historical retelling of the famous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton examines the personalities of the two combatants, the issues and overheated political climate, as well as the politics of the duel in America at the beginning of the 19th century.
Fleming offers a rich brew of political intrigue that dwarfs even the most salacious political scandals today, set in the post-revolutionary world of 1804, a chaotic and fragile time in a young America. Illustrations.

From the Publisher
All schoolchildren know the story of the fatal duel between Hamilton and Burr -- but do they really? In this remarkable retelling, Thomas Fleming takes the reader into the post-revolutionary world of 1804, a chaotic and fragile time in the young country as well as a time of tremendous global instability. This is popular narrative history at its most authoritative, and authoritative history at its most readable.

Praise

Salon
"Thomas Fleming's stunning panorama of the fledgling nation, is a parable of titanic intellect and potential subverted by ambition; of vindictiveness, venality, lust, chimerical visions of empire and, finally, murder....DUEL approaches Greek tragedy in its breadth." - Katharine Whittemore 09/29/1999

Times Literary Supplement
"DUEL unfolds a rich narrative of Alexander Hamilton's last year....Fleming has a novelist's eye for the telling, concrete detail." - Lance Banning 12/01/2000
