    (February 6, 1756-September 14, 1836)
    Fought in the Revolutionary War under Benedict Arnold, George Washington and Israel Putnam
    Started a practice with Alexander Hamilton in New York (1783)

    Shot and killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel (July 11, 1804)
    He applied to Princeton when he was 11 years old.
    He converted the Tammany Society (later known as Tammany Hall) from a social club into a Democratic political machine which would dominate New York City for years to come.
    He tied with Jefferson with 73 electoral votes, and lost in the election after a long drawn out battle in the House of Representatives.
    As a result, he was alienated from Jefferson and most of his administration, and considered an outsider as vice president.
    He ran for the governorship of New York, where Alexander Hamilton, gaining more ground in the political machine, made insulting comments about him and generally secured his defeat.
    He then challenged Hamilton to a duel, where he fatally shot Hamilton in the chest.
    He spent the remainder of his life running from the law.
    He organized a small militia and planned on making a massive new nation in the west, forged from conquered provinces of Mexico.
    He turned himself in at the Orleans Territory but then jumped bail and fled to Spanish Florida (January 10, 1807).
    He was divorced by his wife on the day he died.
    He put his studies at Princeton University on hold to enlist with the rebels in the Revolutionary War.
    His duel with Hamilton observed the rules of dueling, and he was primarily targeted for political reasons.
    He became a leading war officer in the Revolutionary War at the age of 21.
    He was intercepted going to Florida in Alabama, where he was extradited to Virginia for a court hearing.
    He was acquitted on charges of treason in his trial.
    Woodrow Wilson said of him: 'He had genius enough to have made him immortal, and unschooled passion enough to have made him infamous.'
    He was buried with full military honors.
