Summary[edit]

Description
English: Illustration, "Duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. After the painting by J. Mund." The duel took place in Weehawken, New Jersey on July 11, 1804. Note: possibly due to artistic license and the problems of perspective and canvas size etc, the duellists are standing at an unusually short distance from each other. However, it is known that some duels did indeed take place at very short distances such as this, though most were fought where the opponents were standing approximately 50 feet apart.
The protagonists are dressed in anachronistic 18th century dress, not the common fashion of the early 19th century.
