Adams v. Jefferson: The Tumultuous Election of 1800

By: John Ferling

Publisher: Oxford University Press, 2004

You think the election of 2000 was contentious? The election of 1800 was worse, challenging the very nature of our infantile democracy. It led to major changes that set up the electoral process as we know it today. The era brought in something unforeseen by our forefathers – the rise of political parties and different visions of how the nation should be governed. The positions of the two parties were not dissimilar from today. Mr. Ferling’s history of the United States in the 1790s reads like a novel. I couldn't put it down.
