Professor Edward J. Larson presented "Adams, Jefferson, and the Turbulent Election of 1800" for the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The presentation was part of the center's America's Townhall series.
Via the National Constitution Center:
The election of 1800—which marked the first-ever peaceful transfer of power between political parties in American history—gave birth to the country’s two-party system that still exists today. Join presidential historians Lindsay Chervinsky, author of The Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution, and Edward Larson, author of A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, America's First Presidential Campaign, as they discuss one of the most contentious and partisan elections in U.S. history and what we can learn from it. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.
The event was streamed live on February 28, and can be found at Constitution Center
