Dueling was not without its rules and regulations. In order to legitmize the institution itself, Irish duelists in 1777 convened and came up with Code Duello, a document that would govern the rules and regulations of a duel. Within its 27 Commandments, Code Duello spelled out exactly how to correctly conduct a duel, from attempts to reconciliation between parties, which party decides the time, location, number of paces and weapons of choice, and the role that seconds played in facilitating a duel. By the turn of the 19th century, every gentleman from the United States to Europe had a copy of Code Duello inside their pistol chest, which reminded them to maintain their gentlemanlike temperament during the course of a duel.
