After the War of 1812, there emerged a group of Republicans who urged the nation to consider "national" issues rather than "local" or "sectional" matters. So persistent were they that many of their party contended that they were abandoning the basic principles laid down by Jefferson. Were they? Could this new group be called "Jeffersonian," or did it represent something else? Examine the things the nationalists proposed for the nation, compare their plans with those of Jefferson and Hamilton. To which set of plans does the nationalists' program seem more closely allied? What does this tell you about the nature of political parties and political ideas at this time? Also, how does the emergence of the nationalists relate to the decline of the Federalists?
