  • In 1796, the first election featuring political parties was held. The winner was the Federalist John Adams, who faced the Democratic-Republican Thomas Jefferson. Adams won the presidency, however, the Constitution stated that Jefferson would be the vice president, meaning that there would be a president and vice president from rival political parties. Adams became the first president to reside in Washington, D.C.
  • After George Washington declared neutrality to the French Revolution, relations were tense between the two countries. France began attacking U.S ships; in order to restore peace, President Adams sent 3 negotiators to France. There, they were bribed by 3 French agents named X, Y, and Z. The public was outraged at this news, and Congress canceled its treaties with France. The two countries were furious.
  • While the disputes with France made Adams and the Federalist party popular, the Democratic-Republicans hated them even more than ever. In response to the criticism, Adams passed the Alien and Sedition Acts. These acts contained many unconstitutional laws against new immigrants. The Democratic-Republicans discovered a way to fight the acts through states' rights. Later, Thomas Jefferson repealed the acts when he was elected president.
