Abstract:

"The struggle between Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party and Alexander Hamilton's Federalist Party defined - and jeopardized - the political life of the early American republic. While Thomas Jefferson's election in 1800 signaled the beginning of the end for the Federalists, they did maintain their stronghold in New England for two more decades. Although greatly outnumbered, they managed to subvert numerous policies of James Madison's administration in the period before and during the War of 1812, threatening the very existence of the fragile young nation." "The world of the Founding Fathers comes to life in this tale of how close the union came to falling apart almost fifty years before the Civil War."--Jacket.
