On any short list of pivotal moments in American history, the election of 1800 will always have a central place. It is the first modern political campaign in our history and one can find surprising parallels between that election and our current election. The election of 1800 also involved larger than life figures – Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and Aaron Burr.  Professor Peter Henriques will set the historical context for us, while Thomas Jefferson will offer his take on what happened during this crucial moment in American History.
