The Burr Conspiracy
- Uncovering the Story of an Early American Crisis
- By: James E. Lewis Jr.
- Narrated by: Robertson Dean
- Length: 20 hrs and 15 mins
In 1805 and 1806, Aaron Burr, former vice president of the newly formed American republic, traveled through the Trans-Appalachian West gathering support for a mysterious enterprise, for which he was arrested and tried for treason in 1807. This book explores the political and cultural forces that shaped how Americans made sense of the uncertain rumors and reports about Burr's intentions and movements, and examines what the resulting crisis reveals about their anxieties concerning the new nation's fragile union and uncertain republic.
