Spirit of 1789 by Eridanis-Requiem Spirit of 1789 by Eridanis-Requiem
Yes if only George Washington could play the piano and Hamilton could belt out something amazing while Jefferson totally kills it on the Violin.

If only.

His health would have prevented it, but it would have been cute to have Franklin on his glass armonica.

O.o YAY! XD
you know, you should include Thaddeus Kosciuszko instead of George Washington, whom we know has no musical instrument skills whatsoever. Kosciuszko actually played harp, and harpsichord... and proficiently enough to compose his own polonaise on it. harpsichord is pretty similiar to a piano(totally different sound, but more period)
here's a random source i found with more information about Kosciuszko's creations [link]
apparently, he was quite the dabbler. no wonder he and Jefferson got along so well. he, Jefferson, and to a certain extent Thomas Paine(another underappreciated dabbler) - or as much as one can get along with Paine.

or you could include Benjamin Franklin on the glass harmonica, even though he's really close to dying at this point(1789) :P but I hear, glass harmonicas don't pair well with violins...so yeah, Kosciuszko on the harpsichord.

lmaoooooo. this is classic.

though i must admit, i feel like i have to come to aaron burr's defense...
there were reports that towards the end of his life, after the death of his son, hamilton grew increasingly distraught and manic depressive...that was also in the Ron Chernow bio (which IS an amazing read, all 700 pages X) ) and it was thought that the duel was just an excuse for assited suicide. he DID willingly fire into the air, and burr just reacted at the sound of the gunshot.

i LOVE hamilton, but i really do beleive burr gets the short end of the stick when it comes to how the rest of the FF portray him.

XD Thanks! It's what I told Fried-Ariena...he shot out of fear...have to finish Thomas Fleming's "Duel"

What we know of Burr is pretty much based on the perception of other people...he didn't leave much for himself....

sigh.

You know, the biography on Hamilton I read said that he did like to sing, so we're two thirds of the way there!

with a glint in his eyes....IDK it's weird the whole duel you know. They were both idiots when it came down to it...instead of Hamilton just straight up apologizing and Burr just letting it go...but NOOOOO...It looks like it was completely accidental...Burr shot Hamilton out of fear, once Hamilton shot first trying to aim at the ground/air ...

ugh....just a giant *Facepalm*

There's been some conflicting reports, with stuff about Burr practicing shooting in the days before. And even if he didn't, he was a complete and utter dick about it afterwards. He would refer to Hammie as "My friend Hamilton, who I shot" for years afterward.


I hate Burr. 8I

Which Bio have you read? BTW!? Because that "My Friend Hamilton, who I shot" ...where did you hear that from...because srsly this just inflamed my sensibilities...

I'm actually acquainted with someone who is related to Burr....I might just go and find her now...

I read "Alexander Hamilton" by Ron Chernow. It's seriously a really interesting, at times hilarious read.

I know so many conflicting reports. We'll never really know what went down exactly amirite?

F*ck though if I saw Aaron Burr cross my path...i'd f*ck him up...hell if I had a time a machine I'd beat him up before and after the shooting and then I'd save hamilton...I don't think that even made any sense...

Story is that Hamilton sang a song the day before the duel...and Aaron Burr was at this party...

So odd these people.

George Washington...I really want to hug him.
