Judith St. George has written a fascinating biography detailing the lives of Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Both were orphans and had many other connections leading up to their tragic duel in 1804. St. George contrasts these historical figures by writing alternating chapters about each one. The length of The Duel is only 87 pages which is just right for upper elementary and middle school readers.
