QUOTES FROM JAMES MONROE STILL TODAY MONROE HAVE IMPACTED ON ALOT OF THINGS Events:
1820 - The Missouri Compromise was signed into law during James Monroe's presidency.
1836 - The Siege of the Alamo ended with a massacre of the Alamo's defenders by Mexican troops. James Monroe (1758-1831), the fifth U.S. president, oversaw major westward expansion of the U.S. and strengthened American foreign policy in 1823 with the Monroe Doctrine, a warning to European countries against further colonization and intervention in the Western Hemisphere. Monroe, a Virginia native, fought with the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War (1775-83) then embarked on a long political career. A protégé of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), Monroe was a delegate to the Continental Congress and served as a U.S. senator, governor of Virginia and minister to France and Great Britain. In 1803, he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the size of the U.S. As president, he acquired Florida, and also dealt with the contentious issue of slavery in new states joining the Union with the 1820 Missouri Compromise. HISTORY OF MONROE www.history.com/topics/james-monroe Monroe served as Secretary of State under James Madison, and when the War of 1812 began going badly, Monroe was named Secretary of War to replace the previous secretary. No replacement for Secretary of State was ever named, however, so Monroe effectively held both offices at the same time - the only person in history to hold two cabinet posts under the same president. When a peace treaty was finally signed,Monroe resigned as Secretary of War and resumed the full-time duties of Secretary of State. FACTS ABOUT MONROE * Monroe was the last U.S. president who still dressed in the 18th century fashion of powdered wigs and knee breeches. He was also the last 2-term president to succeed a 2-term president from his own party. (In fact, no 2-term president succeeded any 2-term president until Bill Clinton and George W. Bush). Monroe is also the last president who was never photographed. Monroe was the first president to deliver an inaugural address outdoors to a public crowd. Monroe is also considered one of the least religious presidents in U.S. history, with no known religious affiliation. Finally, Monroe was the first president to live in the White House when it was actually white (prior to Monroe's presidency, the White House was gray). He died on July 4, 1831, the third president in a row to die on Independence Day. * serene-musings.blogspot.com/.../10-fun-facts-about-james-monroe.ht... Public Service:

James Monroe came to the presidency as one of the most qualified men ever to assume the office. His resume included service in the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress, and the U.S. Senate. Monroe also served as governor of Virginia, filled numerous diplomatic posts, and held two cabinet appointments. His success as a politician was the result of hard work and a steady and thoughtful manner. He was noted for his integrity, frankness, and affable personality, and he impressed those whom he met with his lack of pretension. As President, Monroe saw the country through a transition period in which it turned away from European affairs and toward U.S. domestic issues.
During the negotiations that resulted in the Missouri Compromise, his adroit backstage maneuverings help the country avoid a sectional crisis. His administration had a number of successes in foreign affairs, including the acquisition of Florida, the settlement of boundary issues with Britain, and the fashioning of the Monroe Doctrine. The President's relationship with his secretary of state, John Quincy Adams, was vital in each of these cases. The two men had a respect and admiration for each other that led to a successful working rapport. In fact, Monroe had an ability to assemble great minds and then allow them the freedom to work. Scholars have long regarded his cabinet as an exceptionally strong one.

Monroe's time in office was known as the "Era of Good Feelings" due to the lack of partisan politics. This was the calm before the storm that would lead to the Civil War. The completion of the Adams-Onis Treaty ended tensions with Spain with their cession of Florida. Two of the most important events though were the Missouri Compromise which attempted to solve potential conflict over free and slave states and the Monroe Doctrine which would affect American foreign policy to this day. JAMES MONROE SIGNIFICANCE EVENTS Events and Accomplishments of James Madison's Presidency:
James Monroe's administration was known as the "Era of Good Feelings." The federalists posed little opposition in the first election and none in the second so no real partisan politics existed.
During his time in office, Monroe had to contend with the First Seminole War (1817-18). When Seminole Indians and escaped slaves raided Georgia from Spanish Florida. Monroe sent Andrew Jackson to rectify the situation. Despite being told not to invade Spanish held Florida, Jackson did and deposed the military governor. This eventually led to the Adams-Onis Treaty (1819) where Spain ceded Florida to the United States. It also left all of Texas under Spanish control.
In 1819, America entered its first economic depression (at that time called a Panic). This lasted until 1821. Monroe made some moves to try and alleviate the effects of the depression.
Two major developments during Monroe's presidency were the Missouri Compromise (1820) and the Monroe Doctrine (1823). The Missouri Compromise admitted Missouri into the Union as a slave state and Maine as a free state. It also provided that the rest of the Louisiana Purchase above latitude 36 degrees 30 minutes was to be free.
