[vwdemkpb] Aaron Burr on the $10 bill

If we're going to put an additional person on the $10 bill (current plans are not to drop Alexander Hamilton), let it be Aaron Burr.  I think I read somewhere (but can no longer find the citation) that one issue of contention in their fatal duel was states' rights versus the power of the federal government.  This debate still rages today, representing an important issue in America, suitable for commemorating on currency.
