The Election of 1800 was one of the most controversial and exciting presidential elections for/of history. This election resulted in a tie between two candidates who had been running mates. The winner was decided by The House of Representatives. The election was a clash of powers between the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans. Both candidates believed the winner would set the path of America's government forever.
In the 1760’s, Spain granted the territory west of the Mississippi River to France. This was a success for France because this territory held the powerhouse of trading along the river. New Orleans, the key city, and Louisiana rested in this territory. France began to take the United States permission to use the river for trading. This was a huge drawback for the U.S. because goods would be floated to New Orleans along the river and then shipped overseas.
In 1801 Jefferson found out that France had secretly bought the Louisiana Territory from Spain. Jefferson was alarmed by this, because Napoleon Bonaparte was the French ruler at the time and was trying to conquer all of Europe, Jefferson feared he would now try and dominate power in America as well. Not to mention if Napoleon Bonaparte where to control the Louisiana Territory that would block the westward expansion of the United States. In 1802 the Spanish Governor withdrew the right of American ships to ship their goods through New Orleans, many Westerners were angered by this action. Then the Westerners demanded that Jefferson go to war with Spain and win back their right's but Jefferson thought of this as a bad idea.

After the Revolutionary War, the United States of America began to work on reconstructing its government relentlessly. Though there were some failed attempts, two new parties, and multiple disagreements, the Constitution was born amid the chaos. The government finally had its outline, it now needed to be put into motion. Unfortunately, under the Articles of Confederation, the young government would be tested, argued over, changed, revoked, and denied basic power. Though the Constitution undoubtedly formed the better government, it would face many problems as well.
The election I choose to write about was the election of 1800. The two main opponents were John Adams of the Federalist party, and Thomas Jefferson of the Democratic-Republican party (The Election of 1800). John Adams was running for re-election, and his vice president, Thomas Jefferson decided to run against him. The Federalist party had played a major role in our brief history as a country, as they helped ratify the Constitution (The Ratification Debate). The Federalists were pushing for more federal power, but the Democratic-Republican party was pushing for more power from the state government, which helped them gain a lot of support.
Robert Yates was an Anti federalist and did not support the constitution. He arrived at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on May 25, 1787, but decided to leave early due to the fact that he did not believe in adopting a federal Constitution and left on July 10, 1787. He did not believe in a strong central government and did not have a position in the new Federal Government. He was against any concession to the federal congress that might lessen the sovereignty of the states. He stated this all in a letter with John Langston that was written to Governor George Clinton of New York, stating the dangers of centralizing power and urging opposition to the adoption of the Constitution.
The election of 1800 was considered to be a turning point of the fate of the United States; therefore, it is often considered as the ‘Revolution of 1800.’ The rivalry for the leadership position of the United States was particularly very heated. Between Federalist John Adams and Republican Thomas Jefferson, to both Republican candidates of Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr; each candidate viciously fought for the right to claim the title. In the United States prior to the election of 1800, George Washington, a federalist, ran the country.
George Washington's family traces back to North America. His great-grandfather, John Washington, immigrated from England to the Colony of Virginia in 1656. The family was from the upper class in England and was granted land by King Henry the VIII. A lot of the family’s wealth was lost in the Puritan revolution, so in 1657 George’s grandfather, Lawrence Washington, also migrated to the Colony of Virginia. George’s father, Augustine, was born in 1694 to Lawrence and Mildred Washington.

The new constitution, a document granting the framework for a new democratic government, replacing the Articles of the Confederation. This new document gained approval from some of the citizens, but also raised questions and concerns from others. There was a constant back and forth between the two groups on whether or not the constitution should be ratified. This editorial provides historical background on the issue and expresses my opinion on which side I would’ve chosen.
During the process of ratifying the constitution, the federalists and anti-federalists had major disagreements on what views and ideas should be presented. Because of all of the disagreements, the two groups were eventually divided and each held their own views on what the constitution should carry. The federalists were a group of led by Alexander Hamilton and were the first political party of the United States. Most of the federalist lived in urban areas.
The early beginnings of the British colonies as the United States of America led to the passing of laws and the development of precedents that have governed the American people to present day. Despite having declared their independence in 1776, the colonies did not truly get to exercise this freedom until General Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown five years later and the British finally recognized their independence as free states. Since the Articles of Confederation and the Continental Congress were deemed ineffective, it was time for a new governing force- starting with the Constitutional Convention. Intellectual powerhouses and future political players such as George Washington, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton met and created the famous document we know today as the United States Constitution, which outlined the fundamental rights all citizens deserved and the basic structure of the government. In the following months, the judicial branch was created, Madison’s Bill of Rights was
The American Constitution had a fight between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Some of the best political people in the world got together in Philadelphia and other cities to find common ground within governmental organization. The Federalists and the anti-Federalists had some great political thoughts that agreed as well as disagreed with some of the political views. They argued what they believed, so of course their opinions were totally different from each other.
Kimberly Paul Mr. Brandenburg 030817 Much like the Democrats and Republicans of today, Federalists and Anti-Federalists had diverging opinions on how the nation should be governed. Federalists had the utmost faith in the people and believed that they were the only ones capable of governing the nation fairly and efficiently. They were avid believers of a strong central government, a central bank, and an army. Federalist No. 39 states: “It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it,” proving that they were in favor of central, unionized government.
