Transcript of The Era of the Democrats 1800-1860

The Era of the Democrats
The era of the democrats began with Thomas Jefferson's election in 1800. It was the beginning of democratic domination lasting unitl civil war. Jefferson ran on a platform in support of
small land holders and decentralized government against the federalist platform. The Federalist supported a coalition of
big business and big government. The Federalist
party disappeared shortly after the election in 1816. Around the time of the
fall of the Federalist Party, the
Era of Good Feeling began. When the Napoleonic wars ended American
citizens were able to pay less attention to European political and military affairs and hence the name "The Era of Good Feeling". The United States had seen a
one-party system before the Federalist
Party dissolved. After the Federalist Party
dissolved the Democratic-Republican party
was left. By: Mya Taylor, Melissa Merck, Draevon Welsh, Jessica Williams, Lizz Burch, Jasmine Baldridge Jackson's supporters dropped the Republican off of the Democratic-Republican party's name. In the mid-1820s the Democratic-Republican split into factions. The Democrats, led by Jackson, were a coalition of small farmers, debtors, frontier pioneers and slave holders. The most common issues between the Whigs and the Democrats were conflicts over public lands, the Second Bank of the United States, high tariffs and slavery. All of these conflicts made new party alignments inevitable.
