    Did you know... that around the time of the Revolutionary War , dueling occurred in every state of the nation ( U.S ) regularly , often for even relatively slight offenses , such as insults , or to resolve gambling disputes ? Few laws prohibited this tradition inherited from the Old World , which continued to evolve . Although no binding set of rules governed the proceedings of a duel in the United States largely , no doubt , because dueling was outside the law , U.S. citizens adopted the European rules from their ancestors .
