1794 · Creating the Eleventh Amendment

The Eleventh Amendment restricts the ability of any people to start a lawsuit against the states in federal court.


Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr had been political enemies with intense personal differences for quite some time. Burr accused Hamilton of publicly disparaging his character during the elections of 1800 and 1804. On the morning of July 11, the two politicians went to Weehawken, New Jersey to resolve the disputes with an official duel. Both men were armed with a pistol. Hamilton missed, but Burr's shot fatally wounded Hamilton, who would die by the following day. The duel custom had been outlawed in New York by 1804, resulting in Burr fleeing the state due to an arrest warrant. He would later be accused of treason, but ultimately be acquitted.
