Alternate US Presidential Elections 1788 - 2016 V2

Recommended Posts

1800 United States Presidential Election

" The country is engulfed with the Quasi-War with France abroad and is dealing with a domestic fight over the recently passed Alien and Sedition Acts at home. Meanwhile, the Federalist Party is tearing itself apart. All signs point to a Republican takeover of the federal government, which will likely change the trajectory of the country. In such troubled times, who promises both security and a brighter future?"
