Burr, Hamilton, and the Drama of America's Founding - ASU Gammage - October 18


For you history buffs out there - ASU Gammage has a free event exploring the explosive relationship between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton: BURR, HAMILTON & the Drama of America's Founding.

Burr and Hamilton lived in the same city, worked in the same profession, occasionally worked together, had both fought in the Revolutionary War, and seemingly had cordial personal relations.  It was politics that put them on a collision course.

Author and acclaimed historian Nancy Isenberg, author of "Fallen Founder, The Life of Aaron Burr" and Hamilton scholar Peter McNamara of Arizona State University’s School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership. The discussion will be moderated by Paul Carrese the Director of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership.

And you'll also get a rare opportunity to see a first edition of The Federalist papers on display
