A Look Into History: U.S. Presidential Election of 1820


Despite a depression in 1819, and disagreement over slavery, James Monroe was not challenged by any of his party members nor by a real opponent as well.



His vice president was renominated as well.



Even though he didn't really run, John Quincy Adams managed to get a single electoral vote.



So it was a pretty easy victory for Monroe. Only Washington had an easier time getting re-elected.

  2. That is a very interesting map. Maybe I can sound smart in the matter of Monroe and Adams now :P
