Was he really a threat to democracy? Or simply a threat to Jefferson and Hamilton's political careers? Burr grandson of fire breathing puritan preacher Jonathan Edwards was the closest thing to aristocracy in our new republic And every little boy in the post revolutionary era possessed the famous woodcut of Burr carrying the dead body of his commanding officer through the snow drifts of Canada He was also an accomplished political operative before the term was known AND a progressive who created a loophole allowing men to band together to buy property therefore be considered property owners and t
