Who will win in the epic duel between our Hamilton and Aaron Burr scented candles? You! That’s because by buying them together instead of separately, you save 15% off the regular price. That’s almost as good as the discount we give our close friends and family member! (Which you are most certainly not.)

Here are some interesting facts about the 1804 Hamilton-Burr duel:

- Hamilton won the duel. (The winner of a duel is the person who becomes the subject of a hit broadway musical.)

- Hamilton fired first and shot a tree, but no one ever talks about that poor tree which never did anything to Alexander Hamilton (probably).

- In all of U.S. history, this was the only time a sitting vice president shot someone to death in New Jersey.

- Hamilton’s “second” in the highly illegal duel was a judge. So...he was maybe not GREAT at being a judge. (That said, he’d also been Attorney General of the state of Georgia, and he was probably perfect for that.)

- After fatally shooting Hamilton, Burr hid behind an an umbrella. An umbrella! Who even know they had umbrellas in 1804? How long has humanity had umbrellas? It sure makes you think, about umbrellas.

- The Hamilton candle smells like wood and Caribbean rum, and the Burr candle smells like gunsmoke. That’s not really a fact about the duel per se, but we still thought you’d want to know.

- Are you also wondering whether this makes a funny history gift for a history buff who likes political humor and who is interested in US history, especially as depicted in the famous musical about Hamilton, which you may know simply as the Hamilton musical? Well, that's an awful lot of keywords to cram into in a single question, but the answer is yes.
