    Federalist party destroyed. Led to Democratic-Republicans
    Even Hamilton as a Federalist supported Jefferson more than Burr

    Hamilton fired in the air, Burr perceived it as “throwing away his shot” and fired back
    Different perspective from different historians. Some say it was meant to miss, while others say he wanted to ruin Burr’s life once and for all.
