The age of duels was also...

the age of music, invention, slavery, Johnny Appleseed, Cider making, King George III and a glass of Claret. In 1776, while our delegates were meeting in Philadelphia, and Thomas Jefferson was writing what would become the Declaration of Independence, a ship full of wine was on its way across the Atlantic Ocean, to be delivered to John Hancock. He was a major importer of wine. One of the most common wines drunk at the time was called Madeira. This was the wine used to celebrate the signing of Jefferson’s Document on the 4th of July, 1776. Madeira has since gone on to be a traditional toasting wine, and is quite complex and delicious on its own.
