Transcript of Era of Good Feelings DBQ

Thesis: The period after the War of 1812 should not be considered the Era of Good Feelings because of the rapid growth of sectionalism due to territorial disputes, and growing political differences;These greatly overshadowed the attempts to improve nationalism amongst the American citizens. Sectionalism overshadowed nationalism during the period after the War of 1812, but nationalism made an attempt to bond the people of America together. The Fourth of July allowed Americans to embellish on their nationalistic views of their country after the War of 1812. This allowed Americans to come together and celebrate their country's astonishing win of independence and showing their respect towards the first president of the US George Washington (Doc C). The Fourth of July signifies US independence and the freedom of American citizens, which allowed nationalism in America to grow, but at the expense of sectionalism. The Era of Good Feelings Prezi
By: Dehryen and Salvador Territorial disputes contributed to the growth of the sectionalism after the War of 1812. From 1820 to 1824 the nation disbanded into many political groups (Doc. I). By the time the election of 1820 came to a close, James Monroe won most of the electoral votes which showed that the people agreed politically on a person to run their nation. But over time areas started to split into supporting different people with different views thus the growth of sectionalism began to grow. With people having different views politically, the period after the War of 1812 cannot be considered the Era of Good Feelings. After the War of 1812 many problems over keeping the balance between slave and Free states arose which contributed to the growth of sectionalism in America. Thomas Jefferson referred to the Missouri Compromise as the geographical line that would cause more irritation in America every time an issue environmentally came about (Doc F.) Although the Missouri compromise crated a new slave state in Missouri and a free one in Maine, this did not totally resolve the conflicts about allowing slavery in certain parts of the nation. Jefferson feared that the nation’s perseverance would be affected due to this dividing line.
