America Afire: Jefferson, Adams, and the First Contested Election

America Afire: Jefferson, Adams, and the First Contested Election Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

America Afire is the powerful story of the election of 1800, arguably the most important election in America's history and certainly one of the most hotly disputed. Former allies Adams and Jefferson, president versus vice president, Federalist versus Republican, squared off in a vicious contest that resulted in broken friendships, scandals, riots, slander, and jailings in the fourth presidential election under the Constitution.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 323-326) and index.
