The Election of 1800
  • Federalists-John Adams running for his second term and Charles Pinckney for Vice President.

  • It came down to one federalist vote, who decided not to support Aaron Burr.
  • Jefferson became President and Burr became Vice President.
  • Congress passed the 12th Amendment in 1804 -instead of casting two votes for President, each elector must pick a President AND a Vice President on one ballot. This ensures that the President will be paired with his running mate after the election.

Jefferson’s Biggest Mistake!

Let’s see why ….

the barbary states
The Barbary States
  • Pirates from nations along the coast of North Africa attacked vessels from Europe and the United States.
  • To protect American ships, the United States paid a yearly tribute (bribe) to the rulers of the Barbary States.
  • Tripoli- One of the Barbary States.
war with tripoli
War with Tripoli
  • Tripoli demanded a larger bribe than usual. Jefferson refused to pay and Tripoli declared war on the United States.
  • Jefferson ordered the Navy to blockade the port of Tripoli.
  • Philadelphia-American ship that was seized by pirates during the blockade.
  • In response- Americans late in the night captured their ship and set it on fire.
  • In 1805-Tripoli signed a treaty.
seizing american sailors
Seizing American Sailors
  • The British navy kidnapped American sailors and forced them to serve on British ships during the war with France.
  • Impressments: forcing people into service.
  • To fight France, the British navy needed more men than ever before.
the embargo act of 1807 jefferson s biggest mistake
The Embargo Act of 1807(Jefferson’s biggest mistake)
  • Embargo: is a ban on trade with another country.
  • The Embargo Act forbade Americans to export or import goods.
  • Was meant to hurt Britain and France, but Americans suffered more economically.
  • To end the embargo act, Congress passed the Nonintercourse Act.
  • Nonintercourse Act: allowed Americans to trade with all nations except Britain and France.
