This is a podcast about history's losers. People we deem to be villains or lost causes, but we don't really know about. In this case, Aaron Burr.
Everyone knows him as man who shot Alexander Hamilton. After the success of the musical 'Hamilton,' all anyone will remember him for is that.
But, what if I told you-he is the hero of that story? The man who was one of America's first progressive politicians. He was a Revolutionary War hero and-if not for a few twists of fate- would have been remembered better than his nemesis.
The first episode introduces you to the young man who would become a great attorney, powerful Senator, and, finally, Vice President.
What led up to that infamous duel? You've only heard it from Hamilton's perspective. What was Burr thinking? It's all here in the first season of "A History of Losing."
