Looking at the state of affairs today, I cannot help but think that the real tragedy of Hamilton and Burr's duel was not that Hamilton died in Weehawken, NJ, of the wound he received in 1804. It's that Burr didn't challenge Hamilton to the duel until 1804.
If Burr had killed Hamilton in, say, 1784, then things today would be far better.
"...Hamilton was not only a monarchist, but for a monarchy bottomed on corruption."
