Two important men had picked where Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton. Jefferson was made the Secretary of State and Hamilton was made Secretary of Treasure. These two men had butted heads during their time in the cabinet. This had lead to Jefferson leaving the cabinet. Towards the end of his first term he was reelected as president.
The downfall of Hamilton occurred gradually. Because of many of his radical views, he gained a lot of opposition in both the Federalist and Democratic-Republican parties, and was forced to resign, yet still remained popular, with a greatly valued opinion (Brookhiser). Hamilton then lost his firstborn son (Phillip) in a duel when Phillip challenged George Eacker to uphold his father’s honor. And yet Hamilton refused to remain quiet and openly opposed Aaron Burr in the election of 1800, and worked against Burr again when the Vice President ran for New York governorship. In an attempt to heal his wounded pride, Aaron Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel, and the discredited Alexander Hamilton died the day after.
John Adams was dramatically affected by Benjamin Franklin withholding this information because he was deeply passionate about this finding a solution to end the war. Angered by Benjamin Franklin’s actions, John Adams broke off any sort of communication with Benjamin Franklin by leaving Paris. The quarreling continued when John Adam arrived in Amsterdam, and Franklin confessed his disapproval for John Adams’s methods of dealing with foreign powers. The relationship between John Adams and Benjamin Franklin was not terrible because the day before the Preliminary treaty was signed Adams brought himself to praise Benjamin Franklin. Finally, On January 1783 the conflicts subsided with the signing of the Preliminary Articles of Peace.

The protagonist of this work, John Bartine, expresses unusual trepidations concerning an inherited watch which his Tory great-grandfather had owned before his disappearance. When 3artine is questioned about his reaction to this occurrence, "he flamed out, bringing his clenched hand down upon the table as if he had been in a public house dicing with blackguards— ’my view of it is that it was a characteristically dastardly assassination by that damned traitor, Washington, and his ragamuffin rebels! '" (III, 271-72). Such an answer, of course, is distinctly out of place at the end of the nineteenth century; the character who really articulates this view is Bartine’s Doppelganger, his Tory great-grandfather. That Bartine has a great deal of consanguinity with this figure is evidenced by the portrait in the watch cases: "That," he [Bartine] replied, gravely smiling, "is not I; it is my excellent great-grandfather, the late Bramwell Olcott Bartine, Esquire, of Virginia.
After stripping Flavus of his title of Tribune of the Plebs, he asked his father to disown him, because he had two other more successful sons, but he refused. Flavus, already disliking Caesar, only disfavored him more because of Caesar’s attempts to ruin his political career and have his father disown him, which was an insult to him.

William Marbury one of the recipients that was chosen by John Adams, refuse to accept Jefferson’s decision and took matters into his own hands. The facts of the case were vividly sought out, Marbury was to be appointed as justice of peace and his paperwork was completed and ready to be submitted before he could take office.
The uncle was so shocked, that he died, right there. Instead of finding help, Jaffrey continued to go through papers until he found a will for his uncle that was in favor of his cousin Clifford.

He also assisted in the creation of the U.S. Constitution. “At the end of the convention, in September 1787, he urged his fellow delegates to support the heavily debated new document. The U.S constitution was ratified by the nine states in June 1788.” (“History”). Benjamin heavily debated with his fellow delegates before persuading them to decide to create the U.S. Constitution. Without Franklin, the Constitution may not have been
Perhaps if Adams decided to go to war the history of the United States would have been very different. Adams is also remembered for his opinions on Republicanism, which introduced Republican ideas to the American government. However Adams is negatively remembered as a vain, eccentric, and stubborn man, and most of his cabinet and Congress believed he was unfit for president. This was evident when he lost his attempt at re-election to Thomas Jefferson and become the first president of the United States to serve 1 term.
