Welcome To The League of Honest Men

Aaron Burr, Jr. (1756-1836) – US Vice President, US Senator, NY Atty. General, NY State Assemblyman, US Colonel, Patriot, Lawyer, Father, Husband, Student, American Benefactor, Feminist, Adventurer – many things history ignores. Not one to defend himself publicly, he remains much maligned and little understood.

Our agenda: increase contemporary knowledge and appreciation of the man. To that end, he’s presented in his own words, so that his true character may be revealed.

  1. I keep rereading Gore Vidal’s “Burr”. Burr’s humor is wonderful. “To the heights, where else?”

    • I too really enjoy what Vidal did with the character of Burr he created. I’ve found many hours of enjoyment reading Burr’s actual letters to his daughter Theodosia. His wit was truly fierce!
