Good morning, scholars!
Today we are going to be examining the issues and presidential elections of the 1840s. Remember in yesterday's lesson you read about the victories (in the 1830s) of Andrew Jackson and then Martin Van Buren. In the 1840s the United States was still trying to recover from, "The Panic of 1837." A new political party called the Whigs came to the forefront and challenged for power.
Regional differences still were evident as people in separate parts of the country could not see "eye to eye" on important issues. Presidential campaigns were still very tough as candidates tried to portray their opponents in a negative light. Pretty similar to today, right?
Remember to take the time to closely analyze the reading material. If you don't understand a point from the reading definitely send me a message. Cite evidence and fully explain your answers using your own words.
You can do it! I continue to be really proud of all of you! Mr. Bruning
