- 11. One last round, gents.
- 12. Let's have another round tonight.
- 13. Hear ye, hear ye!
- 14. My name is Samuel Seabury, and I present
- 15. "Free Thoughts on the Proceedings
of the Continental Congress."
- 16. Boom!
- 17. Incoming!
- 18. Boom!
- 19. - Your Excellency, sir.
- Who are you?
- 20. Aaron Burr, sir.
Permission to state my case?
- 21. As you were.
- 22. - Yes?
- 23. Your Excellency, you wanted to see me?
- 24. Hamilton, come in. Have you met Burr?
- 25. - Yes, sir. We keep meeting.
- We keep meeting.
- 26. As I was saying, sir, I look forward
to seeing your strategy play out.
- 27. - Burr?
- 28. Close the door on your way out.
- 29. Have I done something wrong, sir?
- 30. Sir?
- 31. Sir—
- 32. Yeah, to be their secretary.
I don't think so.
- 33. - Now, why are you upset?
- I'm not.
- 34. Yes.
- 35. Boom!
- 36. Boom!
- 37. - What?
- And his right-hand man!
- 38. Boom!
- 39. That's true.
- 40. - Where are you taking me?
- I'm about to change your life.
- 41. Then by all means, lead the way.
- 42. Elizabeth Schuyler.
It's a pleasure to meet you.
- 43. - Schuyler?
- My sister.
- 44. Thank you for all your service.
- 45. If it takes fighting a war for us to meet,
it will have been worth it.
- 46. I'll leave you to it.
- 47. Ha!
- 48. All right, all right.
That's what I'm talking about!
- 49. Now, everyone, give it up
for the maid of honor,
- 50. Angelica Schuyler!
- 51. - Where are you taking me?
- I'm about to change your life.
- 52. Then by all means, lead the way.
- 53. Elizabeth Schuyler.
It's a pleasure to meet you.
- 54. - Schuyler?
- My sister.
- 55. Thank you for all your service.
- 56. If it takes fighting a war for us to meet,
it will have been worth it.
- 57. I'll leave you to it.
- 58. Whoo-hoo!
- 59. Is that so?
- 60. - I should go.
- No, these guys should go.
- 61. - Leave us alone.
- 62. You're very kind,
but I'm afraid it's unlawful, sir.
- 63. - What do you mean?
- She's married.
- 64. - I see.
- She's married to a British officer.
- 65. Oh, shit.
- 66. - Cavalry's not coming.
- But, sir—
- 67. Alex, listen.
There's only one way for us to win this.
- 68. Provoke outrage, outright.
- 69. That's right.
- 70. I'm a general. Whee!
- 71. - Hamilton!
- Ready, sir!
- 72. - Have Lafayette take the lead.
- Yes, sir!
- 73. Then I'll do it.
- 74. Alexander,
you're the closest friend I've got.
- 75. Laurens, do not throw away your shot.
- 76. Fire!
- 77. Yes, sir.
- 78. - Hamilton.
- 79. Meet me inside.
- 80. - Son—
- Don't call me son.
- 81. This war is hard enough
- 82. Lee called you out.
- 83. - We called his bluff.
- You solve nothing.
- 84. You aggravate our allies to the south.
- 85. You're absolutely right.
- 86. John should have shot him in the mouth.
That would've shut him up.
- 87. - Son—
- I'm not your son—
- 88. Or you could die, and we need you alive.
- 89. I am more than willing to die.
- 90. Your wife needs you alive, son.
I need you alive!
- 91. Call me son one more time!
- 92. Go home, Alexander.
- 93. That's an order from your commander.
- 94. Sir—
- 95. Go home!
- 96. The Battle of Yorktown.
- 97. 1781.
- 98. Whoo!
- 99. Left! Right! Hold!
- 100. Go!
- 101. What? What? What?
- 102. And just like that, it's over.
We tend to our wounded. We count our dead.
- 103. Black and white soldiers wonder alike
if this really means freedom.
- 104. Not yet.
- 105. We negotiate the terms of surrender.
I see George Washington smile.
- 106. We escort their men out of Yorktown.
They stagger home single file.
- 107. Tens of thousands of people
flood the streets.
- 108. There are screams
and church bells ringing,
- 109. and as our fallen foes retreat,
I hear the drinking song they're singing.
- 110. Freedom for America! Freedom for France!
- 111. - We won!
- We won!
- 112. We won! We won!
- 113. Alexander, there's a letter for you.
- 114. It's from John Laurens.
I'll read it later.
- 115. - No. It's from his father.
- His father?
- 116. Will you read it for me?
- 117. "On Tuesday the 27th,
- 118. my son was killed in a gunfight
- 119. against British troops
retreating from South Carolina.
- 120. The war was already over.
- 121. As you know, John dreamed of emancipating
and recruiting 3,000 men
- 122. for the first all-black military regiment.
- 123. His dream of freedom for these men
dies with him."
- 124. Alexander, are you all right?
- 125. I have so much work to do.
- 126. What?
- 127. What?
- 128. - Alexander?
- Aaron Burr, sir.
- 129. - Well, it's the middle of the night.
- Can we confer, sir?
- 130. - Is this a legal matter?
- Yes, and it's important to me.
- 131. - What do you need?
- Burr, you're a better lawyer than me.
- 132. Okay.
- 133. - Uh, who's your client?
- The new US Constitution.
- 134. - No.
- Hear me out.
- 135. No way.
- 136. - No one'll read it.
- I disagree.
- 137. - And if it fails?
- Burr, that's why we need it.
- 138. - The Constitution's a mess.
- So it needs amendments.
- 139. - It's full of contradictions.
- So is independence.
- 140. - We have to start somewhere.
- No. No way.
- 141. - You're making a mistake.
- Good night.
- 142. Hey. What are you waiting for?
What do you stall for?
- 143. - What?
- We won the war. What was it all for?
- 144. - Do you support this Constitution?
- Of course.
- 145. - Then defend it.
- What if you're backing the wrong horse?
- 146. Alexander joins forces
with James Madison and John Jay
- 147. to write a series of essays defending
the new United States Constitution
- 148. entitled "The Federalist Papers."
- 149. The plan was
to write a total of 25 essays,
- 150. the work divided evenly
among the three men.
- 151. In the end, they wrote 85 essays
in the span of six months.
- 152. John Jay got sick after writing five.
- 153. James Madison wrote 29.
- 154. Hamilton wrote the other 51!
- 155. Sir, do you want me to run
the Treasury or State Department?
- 156. Treasury.
- 157. Let's go.
- 158. Alexander...
- 159. I have to leave.
- 160. Alexander.
- 161. I am not throwing away my shot!
- 162. France. What?
- 163. Ladies and gentlemen,
- 164. you could've been anywhere
in the world tonight,
- 165. but you're here with us in New York City.
- 166. Are you ready for a cabinet meeting?
- 167. The issue on the table:
- 168. Secretary Hamilton's plan to assume
state debt and establish a national bank.
- 169. Secretary Jefferson,
you have the floor, sir.
- 170. Thank you,
Secretary Jefferson. Oh.
- 171. - Secretary Hamilton, your response.
- All right now.
- 172. Excuse me.
- 173. Madison, Jefferson, take a walk.
Hamilton, take a walk.
- 174. We're gonna reconvene
after a brief recess.
- 175. - Hamilton.
- 176. A word.
- 177. You wanna pull yourself together?
- 178. I'm sorry.
These Virginians are birds of a feather.
- 179. Young man, I'm from Virginia.
So, watch your mouth.
- 180. So we let Congress
get held hostage by the South?
- 181. - You need the votes.
- No, we need bold strokes.
- 182. - We need this plan.
- No, you need to convince more folks.
- 183. Well, James Madison won't talk to me.
That's a nonstarter.
- 184. Ah. Winning was easy, young man.
- 185. - They're being intransigent.
- You have to find a compromise.
- 186. They don't have a plan.
They just hate mine!
- 187. Convince them otherwise.
- 188. And what happens
if I don't get congressional approval?
- 189. I imagine they'll call for your removal.
- 190. - Sir.
- Figure it out, Alexander.
- 191. That's an order from your commander.
- 192. What!
- 193. Uh-huh!
- 194. Okay.
- 195. Hey, our kid is pretty great.
- 196. Hi.
- 197. I have to get my plan through Congress.
- 198. I can't stop
till I get this plan through Congress.
- 199. I don't know about any letter!
- 200. I didn't know any better!
- 201. So?
- 202. Really?
- 203. Oh, but, uh—
- 204. It isn't pretty.
- 205. Look, Grandpa's in the paper.
- 206. "War hero, Philip Schuyler,
loses Senate seat
- 207. to young upstart, Aaron Burr."
- 208. The issue on the table:
- 209. France is on the verge of war
- 210. Now, do we commit money and aid to our
French allies, or do we stay out of it?
- 211. Remember, my decision on this matter
is not subject to congressional approval.
- 212. The only one you have to convince is me.
- 213. Secretary Jefferson,
you have the floor, sir.
- 214. France.
- 215. Uh-huh.
- 216. Thank you, Secretary Jefferson.
- 217. Secretary Hamilton, your response.
- 218. Get him, boy!
- 219. Let him know right now.
- 220. Yeah.
- 221. - Hamilton.
- Daddy's calling.
- 222. Which I wrote.
- 223. Mr. President, you asked to see me.
- 224. What do you need, sir? Sir?
- 225. Sir, I don't know what you heard,
but whatever it is, Jefferson started it.
- 226. You're kidding.
- 227. Ha! Good luck defeating you, sir.
- 228. I'm sorry, what?
- 229. No, sir. Why?
- 230. Though, in reviewing the incidents
of my administration,
- 231. I am unconscious of intentional error,
- 232. I am nevertheless too sensible
of my defects
- 233. not to think it probable
that I may have committed many errors.
- 234. I shall also carry with me the hope
- 235. that my country will view them
- 236. And that after 45 years
of my life dedicated to its service,
- 237. with an upright zeal,
- 238. the faults of incompetent abilities
will be consigned to oblivion,
- 239. as I myself must soon be
- 240. to the mansions of rest.
- 241. I anticipate with pleasing expectation
- 242. What?
- 243. John Adams?
- 244. President John Adams?
- 245. Good luck.
- 246. Say what?
- 247. Hamilton's out of control.
- 248. This is great. He's out of power,
he holds no office,
- 249. and he just destroyed
President John Adams,
- 250. the only other significant member
of his party.
- 251. Hamilton is a host unto himself.
- 252. As long as he can hold a pen,
he's a threat.
- 253. Let's let him know what we know.
- 254. Mr. Vice President.
- 255. Mr. Madison.
- 256. Senator Burr.
- 257. What is this?
- 258. Is that a yes?
- 259. Um, yes.
- 260. What?
- 261. My God.
- 262. Gentlemen, let's go.
- 263. So?
- 264. Burr.
- 265. The Reynolds Pamphlet.
- 266. Highlights!
- 267. Damn.
- 268. - I came as soon as I heard.
- 269. Damn!
- 270. The Reynolds Pamphlet.
- 271. Have you read this?
- 272. Okay!
- 273. George!
- 274. - George.
- I'm trying to watch the show.
- 275. Ooh.
- 276. Mr. Hamilton, come in.
- 277. They brought him in a half an hour ago.
He lost a lot of blood on the way over.
- 278. - Is he alive?
- 279. But you have to understand,
- 280. the bullet entered just above his hip
and lodged in his right arm.
- 281. - Can I see him, please?
- I'm doing everything I can.
- 282. But the wound was already infected
when he arrived.
- 283. Philip.
- 284. Pa.
- 285. Is he breathing?
Is he going to survive this?
- 286. I know, I know.
- 287. Un, deux, trois...
- 288. Sept, huit, neuf.
- 289. Sept, huit...
- 290. The election of 1800.
- 291. - Can we get back to politics?
- Uh, please.
- 292. Who did you have in mind?
- 293. - Don't laugh.
- Who is it?
- 294. You used to work on the same staff.
- 295. Burr!
- 296. It's 1800. Ladies, tell your husbands,
"Vote for Burr!"
- 297. - Burr!
- I don't like Adams.
- 298. Well, he's gonna lose.
That's just defeatist.
- 299. And Jefferson?
- 300. - In love with France.
- Yeah, he's so elitist.
- 301. I like that Aaron Burr.
- 302. I can't believe we're here with him.
- 303. He seems approachable.
- 304. Like you could grab a beer with him.
- 305. - Burr.
- 306. Is there anything you wouldn't do?
- 307. No. I'm chasing what I want.
- 308. - And you know what?
- 309. I learned that from you.
- 310. It's a tie.
- 311. It's up to the delegates.
- 312. It's up to Hamilton!
- 313. Yo!
- 314. Oh!
- 315. Oh!
- 316. Oh!
- 317. Oh!
- 318. Jefferson has my vote.
- 319. Oh!
- 320. Oh!
- 321. Oh!
- 322. And?
- 323. You won in a landslide.
- 324. Uh-huh.
- 325. I look forward to our partnership.
- 326. - Our partnership?
- As your vice president.
- 327. Ha! Yeah, right.
- 328. You hear this guy?
- 329. Man openly campaigns against me,
- 330. talkin' 'bout,
"I look forward to our partnership."
- 331. It is crazy that the guy
who comes in second
- 332. gets to be vice president.
- 333. Ooh. You know what?
We can change that.
- 334. - You know why?
- 335. 'Cause I'm the president.
- 336. Burr, uh, when you see Hamilton,
- 337. thank him for the endorsement.
- 338. Sweet Jesus.
- 339. Then stand, Alexander.
- 340. Weehawken. Dawn.
- 341. Guns. Drawn.
- 342. You're on.
- 343. Hey.
- 344. Rise up. Rise up. Rise up.
- 345. My love, take your time.
- 346. I'll see you on the other side.
- 347. He aims his pistol at the sky.
- 348. Wait!
- 349. President Jefferson.
- 350. I'll give him this,
his financial system is a work of genius.
- 351. I couldn't undo it if I tried.
- 352. And I tried.
- 353. President Madison.
- 354. He took our country
from bankruptcy to prosperity.
- 355. I hate to admit it,
but he doesn't get enough credit
- 356. for all the credit that he gave us.
- 357. Oh.
