This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 1800 & 1804 - Jefferson. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The significance of the 1800 election lay in the fact that it entailed the first peaceful transfer of power between parties under the U.S. Constitution: During the campaign, Federalists attacked Jefferson as an un-Christian deist, tainted by his sympathy for the increasingly bloody French Revolution.
Unfortunately, the system still provided no separate votes for president and vice president, and Democratic-Republican managers failed to deflect votes from their vice-presidential candidate, Aaron Burr. This result threw the election into the House of Representatives, where each state had 1 vote, to be decided by the majority of its delegation. Jefferson was elected after 19 identical ballots were cast.
The 1804 election was a landslide victory for the incumbent Thomas Jefferson and vice-presidential candidate George Clinton (Democratic-Republicans or Republicans) over the Federalist candidates, Charles Pinckney and Rufus King. The vote was 162-14. The election was the first held under the 12th Amendment, which separated electoral college balloting for president and vice president.
