Program image

Drama! Intrigue! Scandal! The Presidential Election of 1824 was the most hotly-contested election in American history to that time. Join The Hermitage, Home of President Andrew Jackson, in an interactive look at the election that changed the course of American history, examining the question of whether or not our nation is a republic, or a democracy. By referencing primary source documents such as the diary of John Quincy Adams, the official record of the electoral vote, the vote in the House of Representatives and personal letters from Andrew Jackson, students will be able to see a Revolutionary nation come into its own.
