The Will of the People

The presidential campaign of 1800 was perhaps the most bitter in U.S. history. Thomas Jefferson explains to modern students how negative campaigning, partisan politics, and contested elections have been part of our political system since the republic's earliest days.

Join APT's IQ Learning Network as we watch these videos and interact live. As the 2016 Presidential Election draws near, let's explore the election process in a historical context.

This event will be hosted on OVEE, an online interface which allows multiple users to watch videos together and participate in a live chat with panelists.

Joining us to answer your questions and comments is Dr. Joseph Beatty, Colonial Williamsburg's Director of Research and Interpretation.
