I. Adams and the Alien and Sedition Acts a. Adams was not a huge supporter of the Alien and Sedition Acts because he they did not stand for the principles he established in the establishment of the US. But he was a Federalist so he supported the A and S Acts b. Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions- Ghost written by Madison and Jefferson and passed by these states. Said that the A and S Acts were unconstitutional and violated the First Amendment. They believed that their state had the right to block out these acts for their states. They state the 10 th amendment that says the state can acts sovereign (Jeff and Mad don’t believe this when they become president of course) c. As the country moves to election of 1800, there is greater anxiety where the Federalists are going on their political basis. i. One of the causes was the discomfort about the A and S Acts. ii.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
