History will come to life through our annual re-enactment of the 1804 pistol duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Burr, first term Vice President of the United States under Thomas Jefferson, shot Hamilton, Secretary of the Treasury, in a duel fueled by years of animosity and personal tensions between the two political rivals. Learn what the significance of this duel between national leaders had on Clinton’s history and why a town once named Burrville changed its name to Clinton. The re-enactors from the Anderson County Sons of the Revolution will also have a booth set up on Main Street to display their re-enactment items.
Chamber President Rick Meredith announces, “The Anderson County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present a festival that attracts local, out of town and out of state visitors to our area. This festival supports local businesses, boosts our local economy and encourages visitors to return to the area.” The event is being sponsored by SunTrust, Tennova, Methodist Medical Center, Fox Toyota and the City of Clinton.
