Duel! Burr and Hamilton's Deadly War of Words by Dennis Brindell Fradin is another one I think the kids will thoroughly enjoy. The 1804 deadly duel of words between vice president, Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. This famous match is explained in this wonderful children's book. This is a famous duel but one I am not sure people know much about and one, I think, kids will devour!! Another great one for boys - it will reel them in and hook them!!
