characters The Heartbreak of Aaron Burr H.W. Brands ´ 0 summary summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ H.W. Brands N American history Burr was also a man before his time a proponent of euality between the sexes well over a century before women were able to vote in the US Through Burr's extensive witty correspondence with his daughter Theodosia Brands traces the arc of a scandalous political career and the early years of Amer. There are many ways to teach history An author can give us a broad overview of the time period allowing readers to situate each event within its context they can give us an in depth depiction of great battles or turning points that were crucial to a larger narrative or they can place us behind the eyes of one person living in the world we wish to discover For this gripping tale Brands chooses the third route letting us follow Burr as he ages alongside our infant nation However this tale is less focused on the nation as a whole as much as it is determined to reveal the relentless and often unacknowledged suffering of its subject By the time his life reached its end as this book convincingly argues Aaron Burr may have truly been the saddest man in these United States It has been an incredibly long time since I have been this emotionally impacted by a work of history The title of the book refers to Burr s heartbreak but it would be a mistake to speak of only one Rather heartbreak is a theme of Burr s life not an event The smash hit musical Hamilton portrays Burr as an ambitious politician determined to succeed no matter the cost but Brand s work speaks of a far nuanced character While the musical paints Burr as a man driven by the need to create a legacy Heartbreak reveals that the only source of motivation that rivaled Burr s principals was his need to relieve himself of the crushing debt he accrued over the course of his life Aaron Burr was a man cheated out of his country s memory Despite steadfast adherence to his code of honor he is ignored if not hated by many With this fantastic book Brands takes a large step towards remedying the misrepresentation and slander that have plagued Burr s name This is not a work of detached history It is a stirring defense of a man who suffered the ultimate tragedy and those who read it will be all the better for this fact

Brands Though he was a hero of the Revolutionary War a prominent New York politician and vice president of the United States Aaron Burr is today best remembered as the villain who killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel But as H W Brands demonstrates in this fascinating portrait of one of the most compelling politicians i. Before I saw the stunning phenomenal worth the hype musical Hamilton all I knew about Burr is that he killed Alexander Hamilton and was tried for treason because he wanted to establish a separate nation What a douche right But the musical showed his humanity and like most historical figures beyond serial killers and genocidal dictators he was a complicated sensitive personHence the interest in this book It s super light for a work of scholarship only 171 pages with tubby margins and chubby type and as such it moves uickly Long periods of time jump in a single sentence which acts as a conjunction between excerpts of letters from Burr to his wife daughter andor son in law It s jarring to switch from a sweeping historical statement to dense prose from another time period and I wish that effort was put into fleshing out the story This period of American history has been written and re written but context and sources would help lend credibility to Brands just so statements and build the characters beyond their wordsEven though both those are pet peeves of mine Burr comes across as a sweet caring father and man sensitive to his family s needs and his ego His position as an ardent feminist is made clear even if the word did not yet exist through his insistence upon providing his daughter the finest education His letters are teasing but he consistently longs to hear from her and cherishes her every letterAnd of course based upon the spoiler of a title he loses his wife his daughter and in between his freedom in America It s noted with wry irony that many of Burr s alleged plans seizing Florida from the Spanish Mexican independence and Texan annexation were lionized when officially sancitoned by the government and that rat bastard Andrew Jackson so it seems that he got a raw deal The book doesn t moralize or sanctify Burr but hearing his plans in his own voice it s hard not to feel sad for a guy who 150 years later is remembered as a murderer and coward
