Chapter 3

The Growth of a Young Nation

section 1
Section 1

The Jeffersonian Era

election of 1800
Election of 1800
  • Adams was a Federalist
  • Jefferson was a Democratic-Republican
  • Jefferson beat Adams by 8 electoral votes, but tied with Aaron Burr
  • House re-votes 35 times in the next 6 days
  • Alexander Hamilton finally intervened because he HATED Burr. He convinces a few federalists to cast blank votes so Jefferson can win.
  • Burr becomes vice president, this seems silly so we pass the 12th amendment. Runner up no longer becomes vice president.
jeffersonian republicanism
Jeffersonian Republicanism
  • People should control a simple government
  • Reduced size of army, halted expansion of the navy, and lowered expenses for government social functions.
  • Also went against Hamilton by eliminating internal taxes and reducing the influence of the Bank of the United States.
  • Took office in Washington D.C., next two presidents came from the South.
midnight judges
Midnight Judges
  • At midnight Adams signed federalist judges in, papers weren’t delivered until Jefferson took office. Jefferson said appointments were invalid and Madison (the Secretary of State) refused to deliver the papers.
  • Marbury (one of the midnight judges) sues Madison.
  • Supreme Court says Judiciary Act of 1789 is unconstitutional and therefore Marbury will not receive his papers.
  • This establishes Judicial Review. The newly defined, super important, job of the Supreme Court.
louisiana purchase
Louisiana Purchase
  • After the French and Indian War, France had to give Spain The Louisiana Territory (From Mississippi to Rocky Mountains).
  • In 1800 Napoleon convinces Spain to give this land back.
  • Napoleon plans to use it for a colonial empire he wants to set up in America.
  • Napoleon had to abandon this plan because of problems in Europe. So, he sells it to America for $15 million.
  • The purchase more than doubles the size of the United States.
conundrum for jefferson
Conundrum for Jefferson
  • Remember, as a Democratic-Republican, he believes in a strict or loose interpretation of the Constitution?
  • The Constitution does NOT say that he, as the president, can purchase new land for the country, therefore he CANNOT!!!
  • In order to better the country he must turn his back on his political ideals.
causes of the war of 1812
Causes of The War of 1812
  • United States vs. Great Britain, Round 2
  • Although mad at French and British we focus on British because of impressment (they capture our ships and force our sailors into their navy).
  • Officials in British Canada were supplying weapons to Native Americans so they could fight American settlers.
  • Southern and Western “War Hawks” demand war.
course of the war
Course of the War
  • Madison asks Congress to declare war on Great Britain in June of 1814.
  • Because of Jefferson’s military cuts we are ill-prepared to fight a war.
  • Britain was also occupied with Napoleon.
  • Biggest British victory: August of 1814, the British sack and burn Washington D.C.
  • Biggest American victory: January of 1815, the Americans under Andrew Jackson win at New Orleans
  • Ironically the Treaty of Ghent, an armistice, had already been declared on Christmas Eve of 1814, but news travels slowly across that big blue thing.
consequences of the war
Consequences of the War
  • Led to the end of the Federalist Party because they mostly opposed the war
  • Encouraged American manufacturing because during the war Britain would not sale certain products to use and therefore we had to learn to make our own.
  • Confirmed to Great Britain and to other countries that the United States was indeed a free and independent nation.
most interesting outcome of the war
Most interesting outcome of the war?
  • It gave us our national anthem written by Francis Scott Key and inspired by the defense of Fort McHenry on September 14, 1814.
territory and boundaries
Territory and Boundaries
  • Northern border is 49th parallel from Michigan to the Rocky Mountains.
  • British and America agree to jointly occupy the Oregon Territory for ten years.
  • Adams convinced Spain to give us Florida.
  • Establishes western boundary of U.S. (follow Sabine, then straight up to Arkansas, follow Arkansas, then straight up to 42nd parallel and west to the ocean.
monroe doctrine
Monroe Doctrine
  • Napoleon invades Spain and Portugal who have to give up their claims in the Americas to focus on fighting Napoleon. Once Napoleon is no longer a threat, they want their land claims back.
  • Russians are setting up trading posts in California which they claim is still part of Alaska.
  • Because of these threats, America must act. Monroe warns Europe to not interfere with affairs in the Western Hemisphere, (no new colonies and no attempts to overthrow new independent countries). The U.S. will not involve itself in Europe or in existing colonies.

The Age of Jackson

northern industry
Northern Industry
  • Industrial Revolution takes off in the North
  • The geography makes it better for factories
  • Its economy was already based on trade and shipping, now they add manufacturing
  • Farmers in the North begin specializing in one crop, selling it, then using their money to buy what they needed from Northern factories.
  • Where does this leave the South?
southern agriculture
Southern Agriculture
  • Geography lends itself to a plantation economy
  • Cotton Gin makes the cotton crop more profitable in the South, but requires more slave labor
  • Southern economy is tied to slavery
  • Between 1790 and 1820 slave population more than doubles from 700,000 to 1.5 million (meanwhile the Northern states were either outright abolishing it or phasing it out)

clay s american system
Clay’s American System
  • Plan to make America independent
    • Establish a protective tariff
    • Re-charter the National Bank for a unified currency
    • Sponsor the development of transportation systems
  • South could be the food and raw goods producer, North would buy their foods and raw goods, turn them into something else in their factories and South would buy the North’s manufactured goods. If it could be achieved we would not have to rely on another country and entangle our politics in theirs for the sake of money.
the missouri compromise
The Missouri Compromise
  • When Missouri applies for statehood the balance of power is upset, what to do now?
  • Maine is admitted as a free state, Missouri is admitted as a slave state

the 1824 election
The 1824 Election
  • John Quincy Adams (son of John Adams) beats Andrew Jackson

  • Clay became the National Republican Party and Jackson became the Democratic Party
  • During Adams presidency voting requirements are eased, allowing more “common men” to vote
the 1828 election
The 1828 Election
  • Because of the easing up of voting restrictions three times more men were eligible to vote in 1828 than 1824

  • Jackson wins
spoils system

nullification crisis
Nullification Crisis
  • Remember those protective tariffs as part of the American System? They go higher in 1824 and again in 1828
  • To Southerners the one in 1828 becomes known as the “Tariff of Abominations”
  • Because of this tariff not as many Americans were buying British stuff, so the British no longer wanted to buy American stuff (like cotton)…
  • The South was now required to buy more expensive stuff from the North than less expensive stuff from Britain
nullification crisis cont
Nullification Crisis cont.
  • Calhoun decides that states must still be sovereign and declare acts of Congress unconstitutional (like the tariffs)
  • Congress debates this for awhile, then in 1832 raises tariffs again
  • South Carolina declares tariffs of 1828 and 1832 null and void and threatened secession if customs officials tried to collect the tax
  • Jackson wants to pass the Force Bill to use the military to collect the tax from naughty states
  • Clay steps in again with a compromise to lower tariffs over the next ten years and pass the Force Bill
jackson s bank war
Jackson’s Bank War
  • Jackson felt the Second Bank of the United States only helped the wealthy and not common people so he did what he could to destroy it
  • Jackson won reelection in 1832
  • Started withdrawing all government funds from the National Bank and placing them in state “pet banks” that were loyal to the Democratic Party
  • The National Bank then became just another bank
  • Although Jackson won, he lost a lot of support and his opponents created the Whig party
panic of 1837
Panic of 1837
  • Van Buren is now president and suffers consequences of Jackson’s Bank War

  • Rebels station themselves in the Alamo to prevent Santa Anna from moving farther north
  • Santa Anna attacks the fort while Texans officially declare their independence and create a constitution almost identical to the U.S.’s
  • After 13 days the Mexicans scaled the walls and killed everyone inside, losing hundreds of their own in the battle
  • Then Santa Anna executes 300 rebels which spreads the spirit of rebellion under the slogan “Remember the Alamo”
  • 6 weeks later rebels surprise the Mexicans and kill 630 of them in 18 minutes, then force Santa Anna to sign the Treaty of Velasco granting Texas its independence.
