Although students do not need to remember the details of the Genet incident or the XYZ affair, these incidents help to explain the increasing antagonism of one party for the other that led to Jefferson’s resignation as Secretary of State and eventually to Hamilton’s death. Students do not need to know about the differences of opinion that arose between John Adams and Alexander Hamilton despite the fact that they belonged to the same party. Students do not need to know how foreign affairs continued to divide the parties as the war in Europe threatened to embroil the United States and Jefferson issued the Embargo of 1807, designed to stop the problem of impressment and avoid war. New England Federalists opposed the embargo because it severely hurt their trade and later opposed the War of 1812 for the same reason. Democratic- Republican “War Hawks” from the west and the south supported the war because of issues of national pride and land hunger for Canada. The Federalist Party died out as a result of their opposition to the war at the Hartford Convention and the adoption by the Democratic-Republicans of the Federalist’s pet issues such as the national bank and the protective tariff in the aftermath of the War of 1812.
