Your outline will be the “DBQ Worksheet” that we use in class. Your Power point should follow it. One frame per section
In writing your answer, use the documents and your knowledge of the period 1801-1817.
The time period from 1800 to 1817 included a two party system consisting of Federalists and Jeffersonian Republicans. The Federalists were believed to be broad constructionists, whereas the Republicans were believed to be strict constructionists. Both of these parties had to sometimes venture past their beliefs to appeal to the nation as a whole, rather than appealing only to their party. During the presidencies of Jefferson and Madison, the characterization of the Jeffersonian Republicans was only partially accurate. They did veto a bill dealing with internal improvements; however, they supported tariffs. The Jeffersonian Republicans also made the Louisiana Purchase and imposed an embargo, going against their own beliefs.
