Unless you live under a rock, you might have noticed that there is some political turmoil in the United States, today. Things are getting pretty nasty, but nothing compared to what used to happen in the day, it is pretty minor. When men had a disagreement, they challenged each other to a duel. This would entail agreeing upon a weapon and fighting it out. These political duels weren't a shootout like in the days of the Old West. They were more civil affairs that often didn't end in death. Probably the most famous of these was the duel between Alexander Hamilton, the Secretary of the Treasury, and Aaron Burr, the Vice President. Hamilton lost that fight and his life. There were other politicians that settled their differences with the prospects of a duel. You might be surprised by these names!
