Chapter 13 Section 1

  1. 1. Section 1 Notes
  2. 2.  During the nation’s early years, only WHITE MALE property owners were allowed to VOTE. When new WESTERN states wrote CONSTITUTIONS, they gave the right to VOTE to all WHITE MEN. States in the EAST soon followed this example. By the 1830s, the number of qualified voters in the nation had skyrocketed.  Other groups, however, still had no voice in POLITICS. They included WOMEN, NATIVE AMERICANS, AND ENSLAVED AFRICAN AMERICANS.  In the 1830s, the nation did away with the CAUCUS SYSTEM, in which a small number of party officials gathered to nominate candidates for office. In place of the caucus grew NOMINATING CONVENTIONS, which opened the nominating process to more people.
  3. 3.  The Presidential election of 1824 pitted four candidates against each other. HENRY CLAY and ANDREW JACKSON represented the WEST. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS was an EASTERNER, while WILLIAM CRAWFORD was from the SOUTH.  None of the candidates won a majority of the votes. As a result, the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES had to decide the election. CLAY received the fewest votes and so was out of the race. CLAY threw his support behind ADAMS. As SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, CLAY influenced other legislators and helped ADAMS win the presidency.  After winning the presidency, ADAMS made CLAY his secretary of state. Enraged supporters of JACKSON charged the two men with making a “CORRUPT BARGAIN” to help each other.
  4. 4.  Following the controversial election of 1824, the old DEMOCRATIC-REPUBLICAN party began to split apart.  People who supported ADAMS and CLAY called themselves NATIONAL REPUBLICANS. Their supporters included EASTERN business owners and wealthy SOUTHERNERS.  Supporters of JACKSON formed the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. Its supporters were WESTERNERS and SOUTHERNERS.  JACKSON and ADAMS faced each other again in the presidential election of 1828. JACKSON won by a landslide.  Much of JACKSON’S support came from groups just recently granted the right to vote: URBAN WORKERS, SOUTHERN FARMERS, and people from the new WESTERN STATES.
