Soc studies #25 john quincy adams

  1. 1. John Quincy Adams 6th President 1825-1829
  2. 2. • From 1816 to 1824 only one political party existed in the U.S. • During the election of 1824, these “Jeffersonian Republicans” had four candidates for the presidency • The party nominated William H. Crawford • The other three were “favorite son” candidates. - this referred to a candidate who received backing from his home state rather than from the national party
  3. 3. • The favorite son candidates were: - Andrew Jackson from Tennessee - Henry Clay from Kentucky - John Quincy Adams from Massachusetts • Though Jackson received the largest number of popular votes, no candidate received a majority (more than half) of the electoral votes • According to the 12th Amendment, when this occurs, the election is decided by the House of Representatives • The House elected John Quincy Adams
  4. 4. • Speaker of the House Henry Clay had given his support to Adams • When Adams selected Clay to be his Secretary of State, Jackson’s supporters said this was a “corrupt bargain”
  5. 5. • In 1828, Congress passed a high tariff on manufactured goods from Europe • Northern manufacturers welcomed the tariff because it made goods from Europe more expensive, so Americans would be more likely to buy American made items • In the South, the tariff was hated; they argued that the tariff would keep Europe from buying their goods, and would drive prices up. • They called it the Tariff of Abominations
  6. 6. • The “corrupt bargain”, the rise in sectionalism between the North and South, passing the Tariff of Abominations, and lack of support from Congress caused Adams’ presidency to starkly contrast Monroe’s • John Quincy Adams would serve only one term as president
