US soldier  and Democratic-Republican politician


Senator from New York 1791-1797


vice-president of US 1801-1805


killed Alexander Hamilton in a perfectly acceptable fashion of the times – a duel – 1804


harassed into exile by Jefferson partisans after duel and allegations that he was attempting to form Spanish and French "later Louisiana Purchase " territory into a separate country with Burr as its first ruler. The latter charge was never sufficiently proven and relied on testimony from a series of perjurers and fanatical Jefferson supporters.
