Subject: happy? - July 11
From: Abby Sale
Date: 11 Jul 05 - 11:20 AM

Aaron Burr shot & killed Alex Hamilton in a duel 7/11/1804. Burr fled to Georgia & South Carolina,
making a 400 mile trek through the swamps in a canoe.

        Oh Burr, oh Burr, what hast thou done,
        Thou has shooted dead great Hamilton!
        You hid among a bunch of thistle
        And shooted him dead with a great hoss pistol!

        From The People's Almanac, by David Wallechinsky & Irving Wallace, 1981
