  • The Republican Party was created by the gathering of Whigs, Democrats, Free Soilers, and Abolitionists who protested against slavery in the west.
  • James Buchanan
  • Democrats that supported the Kansas-Nebraska Act were not re-elected. This put the Democrat Party in trouble. Northern and southern whig members failed to work together and that party fell apart. But, the American Party was formed known as the Know-Nothing Party, and few whigs and democrats joined that party.
  • Election of 1856
  • A lot of arguing happens during the American Party's convention about who a good candidate is for the president, and about slavery. After all of that arguing, the delegates finally chose former president, Millard Fillmore to represent as their candidate for the election.
  • James Buchanan was chosen as a democratic candidate for the Election of 1856. He wasn't in the country during the debate so he was not involved in anything. He was a good democrat from Pennsylvania
  • We want James Buchanan!
  • James Buchanan won 14 out of 15 slave states while James c. Fremont won 11 out of 16. Millard Fillmore unfortunately only won 1 state. In conclusion, James Buchanan had the most votes out of everyone and won the Election of 1856, he became the 15th president of the United States.
