The percent of people who voted went from around 2% in 1820 to 26% in 1824.
bargains i hate them (well kinda) idk why
6:47 wow that voice good voice lol
So I am listening to an audiobook biography of Henry Clay that really goes into detail about this election, particularly the "less than fully corrupt bargain." And also into how Henry Clay was a lawyer who enjoyed theatrics in the courtroom. Henry Clay biography video one of these days? In the spirit of Franklin Pierce bios, perhaps…
5:39 ironic quote considering clay spearheaded the war in congress
Yeah we already have one traitor president (tyler) calhoun woupd have been an active traitor while sitting in the white house
Crawford was incacipated by a stroke but he still did better then clay
Jackson us the only man to have the most popular and electoral votes and still lose. Also only one of 3 people to win the popular vote in 3 staraighth elections (fdr, grover cleveland)
He sounds drunk.
1824 was so 2016-ee.
To go from a unopposed to one of the most bitter and contentious election in four years is crazy.

Correction: 1 of 5 Presidental Elections in which the popular vote winner didn't win.

This may have been the Era of Good Feelings, but there weren't many good feelings between Jackson, Adams, and Clay.
Are the population percentages including slaves and women, or only free men?
3 Soon-to-be Presidents in 1 election
I notice a much larger percentage of the total population voting (27%) than in any prior election (all of them being between 1-5%); only rich, white guys.
The Washington screw job
Bro you forgot spoilers!
to those other history buffs, does anyone else consider it ironic that at one point, Andrew Jackson and henry clay agreed on most issues
Even though Henry Clay lost four times, he is the only person to have a mountain in the presidential range named after him that was never president.
Henry Clay looks like Taafe from Affaire Mayerling.

Basically 1824 was the biggest election fuck up of all time
honestly how did Jackson lose that election?
If this was the first election that got rid of the property ownership requirement, why did only 26% of the population vote? 1860 had over 80%
John Calhoun and Henry Clay are… oddly attractive.
I'm only at episode 10 and I feel like the USA has always been a divided, elitist, gerrymandered, partisan, corrupt, voter suppressing, anti-democratic shell of a banana republic it is today. Has anything changed?
