Chapter 13 Terms 1. Era of Good Feelings  - The years of Monroe's presidency, during 1817-1825, people had good feelings caused  by the nationalistic pride after the Battle of New Orleans and second war of Independence with the British. Only  one political party was present, on the surface everything looked fine, but underneath it all everything was  troubled. Conflict over slavery was appearing and sectionalism was inevitable; Missouri Compromise had a very  dampening effect on those good feelings. 2. The Corrupt Bargain  - Immediately after John Quincy Adams became President, he appointed Henry Clay as  Secretary of State. Jacksonians were furious because all former Secretaries of State became Presidents. This  "corrupt bargain" occurred after the Election of 1824 when Andrew Jackson had the most electoral votes, but not  the majority. Then, Henry Clay (having the least of the electoral votes) gave them to John Q. Adams, giving him  the majority and making him President. Jacksonians question whether John Q. Adams made Henry Clay Sec. of  State for payback in giving his votes. 3.
