When Thomas Jefferson was elected president in 1800, it forever changed the political landscape of the United States. The Federalist Party of John Adams and Alexander Hamilton would never win another presidential election, as America increasingly democratized in the Jeffersonian era. And, yet, Jefferson’s ratings with historians and the general public is currently at an all-time low. Professor Denver Brunsman of George Washington University will explore this paradox in tracing the history and legacy of what scholars once celebrated as the Jeffersonian Revolution.
