In Maryland, Mrs. Allison cannot allege strict liability for damages incurred to her daughter by the Huffs’ boxer dog, Stella. To allege strict liability, an owner must take responsibility for the actions of their dog but only if the owner knew of the dog’s propensity to harm mankind. See Slack v. Villari, 476 A.2d 227, 232 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 1984).

In the most famous duel in American history, both participants were casualties. Alexander Hamilton suffered a life casualty, and Aaron Burr suffered a political one. The Duel happened due to Hamilton publishing articles defacing Burr, causing him to lose political favor. The most known of these articles was reported in Cooper’s Letter. The words in this ultimately caused Burr to lose the election for governor of New York.
On the evening of March,5 1770, a small group of boys taunted a British sentry in front of the Bost Custom House. After enough torment the soldiers struck one of them with a musket and immediately after, a group of 60 people gathered around prompting the soldier to get help. Captain Thomas Preston and seven soldiers hurried to protect the sentry. Efforts to calm the crowd failed and when the crowd surrounded the crew retreat was impossible. One of the crew fired and the rest followed on what seemed to be a direct order from Preston leaving five dead and six injured.
Hamilton began his political career by serving in the Congress of the Confederation from 1782-1783. The Congress of the Confederation was the original lawmaking body of the United States after the American Revolution. Hamilton served as a representative for New York. The Congress of the Confederation was governed under the rules of the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation was the first constitution of the United States.
2.4 The Enchantress In two poems Alexander wrote during his youth in the Caribbean, Hamilton expresses two very different positions on women and love. One is idealistic, painting women as almost angelic creatures, the other one employs a very different tone, painting women as dangerous sirens. Hamilton’s early visions of love stuck with him throughout his life, as he seemed to be drawn towards two kinds of women, the agreeable and grounded type that perfectly described his wife Eliza, and the more scandalous kind embodied by his mistress, Maria Reynolds. Even during his marriage Hamilton had often engaged in flirtatious conversations with women.
Hamilton’s relationship with his father was abruptly terminated at an early age. The relationship had been good, in that Alexander listened to his father, and absorbed his philosophy. As did his mother, his father, James, taught his son some important lessons regarding the impermanence of personal relationships (Chernow). Despite James's ostensible closeness with his son, after his separation from Rachel, he initiated no contact with Alexander (Flexner). Even after Rachel's death, when there were no guardians for his sons, James was nowhere in evidence.
Quote 1: “The public defender, trying to get him off, called him a dumb animal,” I told her. “He said it would be like tying a hog down in that chair and executing him-an animal that didn’t know what any of it was all about. The jury, twelve white men good and true still sentenced him to death.” (26) My Response: This quote is significant because it is a representation that times have not changed.
In modern society, guns are seen as a form of control. Those who have guns are able to overpower those who do not. This trend was set when guns were first invented and has stayed the same throughout history. The one place where guns are not a symbol of power and control is in literature, specifically “The Old Gun” and Hamilton. In Mo Yan’s short story “The Old Gun”, the protagonist is a hungry boy who does not even know how to use the titular firearm.
