What If Aaron Burr Had Missed?

Great counterfactual article on HNN about what the U.S. might look today if Alexander Hamilton had not been killed by Aaron Burr in a duel.

I know I railed against counterfactual history in the classroom before, but as a parlor game I think this kind of discussion is interesting. Many of the best conversation's I've had with colleagues and family have involved 'What if' questions.
