HISTORY | 10:03 pm

Even before it became a pivotal moment in the Broadway musical blockbuster "Hamilton," the duel between political rivals Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr was among the best known confrontations in American history.

In the new episode "Hamilton vs. Burr" storyteller Bil Lepp blows away some of the fog, and also revisits details from the Hatfields and McCoys feud, plus what happened at the O.K. Corral.
