Lunch & Learn: Duel at Dawn – The Feud between Alexander Hamilton & Aaron Burr
Early in the morning on July 11, 1804 two men met on the dueling grounds of Weehawken, New Jersey. When the duel was over one man was dead, the other a fugitive. As school children we all learned about that fatal duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, but do we really know what went on? This Lunch & Learn lecture, scheduled for October 10, will go beyond the dueling grounds to the story behind the feud that led to the duel.
Speaker Hugh Boyle is the President and Executive Director of the Grand Army of the Republic Civil War Museum and Library, co-founder of the Delaware Valley Civil War Round Table, and wrote an essay for the book The Lincoln Assassination Riddle. He also spoke on Mary Todd Lincoln at a previous Lunch & Learn at Graeme Park.
Enjoy a continental breakfast, lecture on the duel between Hamilton and Burr, and a lunch buffet. Tours of the historic Keith House will also be available after lunch. Reserved event. $30/person; $25/members.
