Chapter 11: The Triumphs and Travails of Jeffersonian Republic; 1800-1812 People/Terms: 1. Election of 1800 Adams (Federalist) ran in favor of a strong central government and public order. Jefferson ( Democratic Republican) ran in favor of liberty and states’ rights. Jefferson and Aaron Burr tied in electoral votes- Jefferson becoming pres and Burr VP. The three- fifths compromise gave southern voters advantage in helping Jefferson win. North wanted Adams as Jefferson was a slaveholder. -marked the last time there was a Federalist President-peaceful shift in power from Federalist to Democratic Republican 2. Judiciary Act of 1801 *one of the last important laws passed by the expiring Federalist Congress President Adams brought in anti-Jeffersonian “midnight judges” at the last part of his presidency. These lifetime Federalist judges were seen as a way for the Federalists to remain in control of one of the three branches of government after the Jeffersonians took over. Jefferson removed many of the judges except for John Marshall who remained a Federalist judge. 3. Marbury vs. Madison Marbury (named justice of peace by Adams ) went against secretary of state James Madison in court due to Madison withholding his letter of commission. John Marshall instituted the idea of judicial review- idea that the Supreme Court alone had final say on what was considered constitutional or not. 4. Louisiana Purchase Napoleon sold Louisiana and a vast majority of other land to America- an area that would double the size of the US.The bargain helped avoid a US fight with France and a possible entangling alliance with Britain. America secured the Western half of the richest river valley in the world .*By removing the last significant European power from the North American continent, the US was now at liberty to fully disengage from the Old World system of rivalries. 5. Orders in Council Edicts issued by the London government closed the European ports under French control to foreign nations (including America) unless they stopped first at British forts. It was when the British were fighting the French. The British closed off all port vessels that France went through so they couldn't get supplies. American ships were seized also and Americans were impressed into the British navy. -Napoleon struck back at British by seizing all merchant ships (including America) that entered British portsi 6. Embargo Act Law that forbade the export of all goods from the United States whether in American or foreign ships. Embodied idea of peaceful coercion - The warring nations in Europe depended upon US for raw materials and foodstuffs. Britain and France had been continuously harassing the U.S. and seizing U.S. ship's and men.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
