Fact of the Day: Eliza Jumel

Eliza Jumel was the last wife of Aaron Burr who married her late in life and after he had been Vice President and had a very controversial career afterwards. Most believe Burr married her because she was a wealthy widow, and it didn't take long for Burr to almost ruin her own fortune. The couple split after only four months.
