Andrew Jackson and the Rise of the Democrats

Andrew Jackson and the Rise of the Democrats is now available for purchase.

“In this chronological examination of the Democratic Party’s origins, award-winning author Mark R. Cheathem traces the development of both the Democratic Party and the second American party system from its roots in the Jeffersonian Republicans in the 1790s to its maturation during Andrew Jackson’s presidency in the 1830s. The book explores the concept of politics and its effects on the national government of the early American republic.

This historical reference is filled with fascinating facts and anecdotes about 19th-century politics in the United States, most notably how Martin Van Buren acted as the architect of the Democratic Party; what factors contributed to the Democrats’ rise to power; and how the Bank War created the second American party system, pitting the Democrats against Whigs.”
