Growth of a Nation: Securing the Republic

Full Video |31:50

In the early years of the republic, partisan infighting, as well as external threats, imperiled America’s experiment in democracy. Jefferson’s first election was called the “revolution of 1800”—while a real war (against an old foe) exploded in 1812. The United States survived and thrived during the era, adding to its territorial coffers and invading the west. Prolific leaders of Native Americans hoped allying with the British could ensure their security and sovereignty, but instead, Native Americans suffered catastrophically from the War of 1812.
