July 11, 1804: Alexander Hamilton lies dying on the ground. Aaron Burr stands nearby, a smoking pistol in his hand. Meanwhile, Hamilton’s wife sits at home with a room full of federalists awaiting his return. We have learned that history is written by those who want us to believe what they want us to believe, not necessarily the truth. The Hamilton Murders suggests the possibility that history got it wrong – again. We explore six possible conspiracies, based upon historical facts, that surrounded Alexander Hamilton at the time of his death. We will present these theories in true entertainment form and allow you to decide which one you believe is right. In so doing, you will answer the question “Who paid Aaron Burr to shoot Alexander Hamilton?”
