The Democratic-Republicans party broke apart in the 1824 election. A large majority of the states now chose electors by popular vote, and the people’s vote was considered sufficiently important to record.
By the fall of 1824, 4 candidates remained in the running. William Crawford of GA, the Secretary of the Treasury, had been the early front-runner, but severe illness hampered his candidacy.
Secretary of State, John Q. Adams of MA had a brilliant record of government service, but his Federalist background, his cosmopolitanism, and his cold New England manner cost him support outside his own region. Henry Clay of KY, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Andrew Jackson of TN, who owed his popularity to his 1815 victory over the British at the Battle of New Orleans, were the other candidates.
The presentation covers the following:
