George I. Eacker
Fatally shot Philip Hamilton (son of Alexander Hamilton) in a duel

In 1801, Eacker gave a speech critical of Alexander Hamilton which angered Hamilton's 19-year-old son Philip. The young Hamilton defended his father and a subsequent controversy arose. This led to a duel which resulted in Philip's death one day later. Eacker is said to have died from consumption three years later.
