Fragment:

In this biography, the author portrays Aaron Burr, the third vice president, and would be secession leader, as a daring and perhaps deluded figure who shook the nation's foundations in its earliest, most vulnerable decade. It traces his career discussing his acrimonious relationship with Thomas Jefferson; his ambitious vision of expansion; and his historical, self-defended trial for treason. This account of Burr's tumultuous life also offers a rare and eye opening description of the brand new nation struggling to define itself.
