Pistols At Dawn

“The time has come to teach you a lesson for being so irreverent.  You told me that I should try your delicious chicken legs and after I ate my second portion you finally revealed that they were frog legs.  I am not French and I don’t eat frogs”, said Alexander.  Aaron said, “Apparently you do Mr. Hamilton, as I saw you gobbling them down like the hog you are.” Hamilton told Burr, “In Manhattan men are men and we will fight with pistols at dawn.”  Burr replied, “I welcome your challenge and I will see you on that secluded ledge above the Hudson River in Weehawken, where your eldest son Philip died in a duel three years ago.  Don’t forget to bring your second and by the way I have been practicing.”  Hamilton thought, this could be the day that I die.
