2.Thomas Jefferson is (barely) elected in 1800 and the Democratic-Republican finally got their shot at implementing their vision for the country.
The fight over the election of 1800
How did the transition from a Federalist administration to a Democratic-Republican administration go?
What was Marbury v. Madison and why was it important? What did it establish about the Supreme Court and its relation with the other branches of government>
How did the Louisiana Purchase challenge Jefferson’s constitutional philosophy?
Jefferson faces the same problem Washington and Adams did trying to maintain their neutrality during the ongoing war between Great Britain and France. At the end of his second term it will culminate with the Embargo Act. What was it and what affect did it have on the nation?
This will be the beginning of the decline of the Federalist faction (again still no political parties), but they will still maintain their influence especially in the courts. (John Marshall as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will wield enormous power for 30 more years.)
Jefferson had a distinct vision for the United States. What was it and who were the ideal citizens in his view? What do you think of Jefferson’s vision? Does it seem practical?
Does Jeffersonian democracy still affect the way we think of our country today?
Please give me the answer separately.
