1800: Republicans, Federalists, and Party Transition

National Association of Scholars

1800

Republicans, Federalists, and Party Transition

Thursday, May 27th | 2 pm ET
Webinar Event

After years of the Federalists maintaining power, the election of 1800 represented a stark shift. Vice President Thomas Jefferson defeated incumbent John Adams and the United States underwent the first transition of power from one faction to another since its founding. Did the election of 1800 represent a "Second Revolution?" What were some of the tensions surrounding party transition at the time? What was the Federalist reaction to the loss?

Join us on May 27th at 2 pm to find out.

This event will feature Joseph Ellis, Professor Emeritus of History at Mount Holyoke College; Edward J. Larson, University Professor of History at Pepperdine University; and Peter S. Onuf, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Virginia. The discussion will be moderated by David Randall, NAS director of research.
