  1. Hamilton was before his time. Also, he was kind of a dick. Burr was just a dick. I also love that to shoot at each other, they had to skip town and go to Jersey. Because Jersey is the place for these kind of shenanigans.


  2. I know a woman who once held a fairly high position at the headquarters of the Bank of New York — the bank that Hamilton founded. She says that employees there enjoy telling this story about Hamilton:
    Before he left the bank to go across the river for the duel, he said, “Gotta go now. Don’t do anything until I get back!” And so the employees have honored his last instructions to them ever since.
