In 1790, Burr was elected U.S. Senator from New York, defeating incumbent Senator Philip Schuyler, the father-in-law of Alexander Hamilton. Burr served until 1797, losing reelection to Schuyler. In the Nov. 4, 1800 presidential election, Burr and Thomas Jefferson each had 73 electoral votes. On the 36th ballot, the House of Representatives elected Jefferson President and Burr Vice President. On July 11, 1804, Burr challenged and mortally wounded Alexander Hamilton in a duel fought at Weehawken, New Jersey.
