What do you know about either of these men or the election?
John Quincy Adams began his diplomatic career as the U.S. minister to the Netherlands in 1794, and served as minister to Prussia during the presidential administration of his father, the formidable patriot John Adams. After serving in the Massachusetts State Senate and the U.S. Senate, the younger Adams rejoined diplomatic service under President James Madison, helping to negotiate the Treaty of Ghent (1814), which ended the War of 1812. As secretary of state under James Monroe, Adams played a key role in determining the president’s foreign policy, including the famous Monroe Doctrine. John Quincy Adams went on to win the presidency in a highly contentious election in 1824, and served only one term. Outspoken in his opposition to slavery and in support of freedom of speech, Adams was elected to the House of Representatives in 1830; he would serve until his death in 1848.

@wwhitlock this is what I know about the re election of John Quincy Adams
The election of 1824 split 3 ways. Andrew Jackson won 43 percent and JQA won 30. William Crawford was the other candidate.
Since no one won the electoral college outright, the Constitution demands that the house of Representatives decides between the top two vote getters.
Henry Clay was the Speaker of the House. He worked out a deal for JQA to become president and the South would get some concessions.
Jackson supporters were out raged. The presidential campaign between Jackson and JQA for 1828 pretty much lasted for 4 years because Adams was denounced by many as the illegitimate president the result of a corrupt deal.
Jackson won big in 1828. More the 60% of the voters turned out on election day. It was pretty much seen as a victory for the people. More to follow...
would I add that to what I have above
You might want to summarize that, but I mostly gave it to you as background. JQA represented the establishment or old way of doing things at the time. He was not a Federalist because that party had fallen apart. He believed in a strong federal government. He was also against slavery. He came from a New England family and his father had been president. He spent most of his life working for the State Department. Because he had spent much of his life representing the United States in foreign countries, it was easy to make charges against him that he was out of touch with democracy and that he favored monarchy.
Jackson was a man of the people. An outsider. He was a war hero from the war of 1812. He was against the National Bank and supported states rights over national power. He was a southern planter. A farmer who worked his way into owning lots of slaves and lots of land.
It all kind of works together to be an example of what we really want in a president.
Do we want a man with a lot of experience who is well prepared for the job? Or do we want somebody who is more like the average person. Doesn't have the experience but has ideas that will completely change the way government works?
