'Legends & Lies' PREVIEW: See the Deadly Duel Between Two Old Political Rivals
The season finale of Legends & Lies: The Patriots airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel!
In last week's episode, we saw General Washington come out of retirement to rescue a fledgling nation beset with political conflict.
In this upcoming season finale, Alexander Hamilton & Aaron Burr - Deadly Division, you'll see the events leading up to the deadly duel between sitting Vice President Aaron Burr and long-standing political rival, Alexander Hamilton.
Conceding the presidency after two terms, George Washington leaves the office in the capable hands of John Adams. But after just one term, Thomas Jefferson dismisses Adams in the fiercely fought election of 1800.
Jefferson’s triumph is a resounding victory for the anti-federalists, but his two terms in the White House foster years of political infighting, which climax when Aaron Burr, Jefferson’s sitting Vice President, kills his long-time political rival, Alexander Hamilton, in a duel over accusations of corruption.
Burr then returns to the Vice Presidency facing charges of murder...all before leaving office and attempting to annex Florida and Texas, leading to his trial for treason.
