Jefferson's Vendetta

Click to enlarge

One of the great underappreciated stories of early American democracy is the venomous rivalry between Thomas Jefferson and his onetime Vice President, Aaron Burr. During his second term as President, Jefferson put Burr on trial for treason after a failed attempt to take over Spain's North American possessions and set up a new republic. Journalist Joseph Wheelan now tells the story -- and reveals who the real hero of the episode is.
