Seems to me he’s the most interesting of the original people of america . Yet only a few books about him. Kind of strange considering he killed Alexander Hamilton and made Jefferson so angery that he was questionably tried for treason.Why all the mystery? Am i missing something?
There are dozens of books on Burr, from the academic (Milton Lomask wrote a 2 vol biography that is decent) to the popular (Gore Vidal). Gore Vidal’s is the most famous. He is a very interesting figure to say the least but not one that has been forgotten. Simon and Schuster published a bio in 2011 and there are two newer monographs involving Burr in the last 2 years.
