4 4. Supporters -skilled workers -small farmers -plantation owners

5 Decline of the Federalists -suppression of free speech under the Alien and Sedition Acts (1798) gave Republicans a boost in talk of secession during the Hartford Convention (1814) weakened the party -the growth of nationalism after the War of 1812, the lack of unity within the party, and the coming Era of Good Feelings brought an end to the Federalists as a national party

10 National Issues: 1830s and 1840s -expansion of slavery -sectionalism -tariffs -internal improvements -national bank debate -nativism -social reform

11 Decline of the Whig Party -due to the rise of nativism, prohibition and antislavery movements, and breakup of the Union in 1850s -Compromise of 1850 = Whigs split along slavery, anti-slavery lines -Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) = southern Whigs supported act -Republican Party (1854) = attracted northern Whigs who opposed the overturn of the Missouri Compromise -American Know-Nothing Party = attracted nativist Whigs who were opposed to Catholics and immigrants in northern cities

12 Birth of the Republican Party (1854) -formed as a response to the Kansas-Nebraska Act = free soil, free labor, and free men -created a coalition of Free-Soilers and anti-slavery Whigs and Democrats -platform called for the repeal of the Kansas-Nebraska Act and Fugitive Slave Law -dominated by northern and western moderates who opposed the expansion of slavery in the territories -promised a protective tariff for industry, free land for homesteaders, internal improvements, and a transcontinental railroad = party of big business, industry, and a strong national government

13 Political Trends Solid South = period of Democratic Party dominance from Reconstruction until Civil Rights Era Populist Demise (1896) = Populist reform agenda adopted by Republicans and Democrats during the Progressive Era New Deal = relief to African Americans with the WPA and CCC help to secure votes for the Democratic Party New Federalism = Nixon s program of revenue sharing that shifted spending on social programs from federal to state and local levels Conservative Movement (1970s-80s) = Nixon, Ford, and Reagan along with a coalition of economic and political conservatives, religious fundamentalists, and political action committees (PACs) Moral Majority (1980) = religious fundamentalists that financed campaigns to unseat liberal members of Congress
