He literally says "I'm the villain in your history" so you're probably onto something

Well he says “now I’m the villain in your history” as a result of the snap-decision he made. The show does a decent job of showing him as multi faceted historical figure.

Again, I know jack shit about these people outside of the musical so my opinion can be safely discarded.

The PBS documentary “Hamilton’s America” made quite a big deal about how they tried to portray the dualities of Hamilton and Burr, and in it Daveed Diggs said he didn’t think much about the unsavoury sides of Jefferson when he played him because, to paraphrase, he was one of the great Enlightenment thinkers and also a horrible slave owner, and both of those things are true.

I don’t know anything about Burr apart from what is in Hamilton, but I think the show does a good job of showing that he was neither a villain nor a great guy but had elements of both of those things. When I watched the filmed version it struck me that he’s basically a clone of Salieri in Amadeus.

I think it does a good job of painting them both as flawed figures.

Apparently Burr was anti-slavery and a feminist. At least that is what my 15-year-old daughter tells me

Musicals suck arse big time. This one in particular..no racing in it at all, not even a vettel rivalry. Misleading and very very political.I like tits, toast and cheap lager...and sky sports.

You've got to look proper closely, but if you pause the musical at 52:13:06, you can see Abraham Lincoln showing his tits stage-left. They took it out for the VHS release though.
