#HAPPYBIRTHDAY#AARONBURR , Born TODAY , 1756 in #NEWARK#NJ. Third Vice-President of the United States. He sorely tried the seams of the young Republic first by thrusting the Nation into chaos in the Election of 1800 , next by shooting and killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel in Weehawkin , NJ and finally in his magnificent coup-de-grace he sought to over throw the Government of the United States and appoint himself Emperor , to be modeled after the regime of Napoleon. This all culminated in his spectacular Trial of The Century in 1807 for treason.
