Want to take one of the most brutal campaigns in American Political history and use it for your class? No, not the 2016 Election, I'm talking about the Election of 1800! Engage your students with the opportunity to sling mud, or show their passionate devotion for John Adams or Thomas Jefferson!
During the election of 1800, significant amounts of mudslinging occurred between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, along with their supporters. We know of the accusation made about John Adams being a "Monarchist." There is also the claim made by the John Adams camp toward Thomas Jefferson that if he were elected, a reign of bloody terror would be unleashed on the nation. Thomas Jefferson was fed up with the Federalist approach to governing in the late 1790's and wanted to see the "mess" created by them cleaned up. What if you were in charge of spreading the word about your candidate, Thomas Jefferson or John Adams?
