Aaron Burr Tries to Steal Half the Nation

The former vice president turned murderer

So I’m not going to tell the whole story here because that would sort of defeat the purpose of doing this show, but basically Aaron Burr got pretty pissy after his attempts to rise to power were thwarted over and over again, so his idea to fix the situation was to try to steal some recently acquired land and declare himself king and we decided to sit down and talk about it.

It sure makes it sound like we dodged a bullet with that one…too bad Hamilton didn’t.
