The Corrupt Bargain and the Jacksonian Revolution

The election of 1824 pits the Old Republicans against the entrenched interests of one-party rule in America. In this episode of Liberty vs. Power, Dr. Patrick Newman and Tho Bishop discuss the collapse of the first party system of the United States, the corrupt bargain that haunts the political career of John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, and the rise of a new political movement inspired by Jeffersonian ideals: the Jacksonians.
