The Presidential Election 1820


Map Code: Ax00054

 James Monroe’s first term as president was peaceful, successful and became known as ‘The Era of Good Feelings’. They were prosperous years, with a sense of unity and purpose following the war with Britain of 1812. It was therefore assumed that Monroe would run for a second term and, with no Federalist candidate put forward, he was unopposed. The election of 1820 saw the final demise of the Federalist party, demonstrated by the former Federalist president John Adams voting for the Democratic-Republican Monroe. The election was a near unanimous victory for Monroe, and he only failed to secure one vote. It was the vice presidency that faced more opposition, but Daniel D. Tompkins won with a comfortable margin for a second term with Monroe.
