  • YES! I want to thank my mom for birthing me, and my dad for raising me, and the rest of America!
  • We, The House, have decided that John Quincy Adams shall be the next President!
  • The Corrupt Bargain
  • Hey, if you convince the house to vote for me, you can be my Secretary of State
  • Sounds good
  • The election of 1824 and 1828 changed Presidential elections because of the creation of new parties and mudslinging as a result of The Corrupt Bargain.
  • The Parties Spilt
  • Go Andrew Jackson!
  • Republicans
  • Go John Quincy Adams

  • Mudslinging is Born
  • Andrew Jackson said that John Quincy Adams is secretly Medusa!
  • Clay used his influence to help elect Adams. This made Jackson's followers accuse Adams of a Corrupt Bargain, which ruined Adams presidency.
