About Aaron Burr: The Former Vice-President Accused Of Conspiring Against The U.S.

In 1801, just thirteen years after the ratification of the United States Constitution, Aaron Burr became the third man to take the office of vice president. Best known for ending the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton in a duel in 1804, his legacy doesn’t start there. Later in his career, Burr was accused of treason by Thomas Jefferson, the very man he served under as vice president.
