The Vital Attack Alexander Hamilton Led In The Battle Of Yorktown

The Battle of Yorktown was one of the most important military victories in U.S. history. According to History.com, the siege began in late September 1781, and British General Lord Charles Cornwallis would go on to wave the white flag to his enemies across the trenches — American and French troops led by General George Washington — on October 19. Fought in Yorktown, Virginia, the decisive battle marked the last major campaign in the American Revolution, and thus the beginning of the United States of America as a nation.

Here's Why Alexander Hamilton And Aaron Burr Really Dueled

Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr had been political adversaries for years before their rivalry turned violent. They represented two different political parties –Hamilton a leading Federalist, and Burr an important Republican. The clash between Hamilton and Burr ran deeper than conflicting political ideologies, though. Hamilton seemed to genuinely loathe Burr. He thought that Burr "loves nothing but himself" and felt "it was a religious duty to oppose his career," according to HistoryNet. Hamilton went after Burr during the 1800 presidential election, using his influence on his fellow Federalists in Congress to support Thomas Jefferson over Burr. Burr ended up as vice president.
