Thomas Jefferson referred to his electoral victory in the presidential election of 1800 as a "revolution." While Jefferson was able to accomplish parts of his domestic agenda by lowering taxes and signing the Louisiana Purchase, the Jeffersonian victory in 1800 stopped short of a revolution. Federalists continued to control the judiciary through John Marshall, who would preside over a Federalist-leaning Supreme Court for over three decades. Although the War of 1812 brought about the demise of the Federalist Party, after the war, many members of Jefferson's Republican Party started to warm up to Federalist policies, such as the protective tariff and the national bank.

My lecture on the Missouri Compromise is much more recent than the other lectures in this unit. In addition to the introductory lecture, there is a second part focusing on Jefferson's response and also a music video that I recorded with MrBettsClass.
This PowerPoint is really OLD and I'm including it only because some of the slides have relevant information not available elsewhere on this unit page.
