Review

This book tells the parallel lives of Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton leading up to their fateful duel. Brown highlights their many similarities and fatal differences by constantly mirroring the images. By comparing and contrasting the two founding fathers Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton, Brown does a good job of presenting both of them in an equal and fair light. He includes an Author’s Note and bibliography at the end to clear up any issues with inaccuracies. A smart, interesting historical lesson. Would be good in elementary school classrooms teaching about the American Revolution, but probably 3rd grade and up for a small amount of blood.

Recommended. Sharon Tapia, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
