Professor Robert Watson lectured about the 1824 and 1828 elections, focusing on the role these elections played in shaping not only the practice of campaigns and elections but the practice of democracy in the early American Republic. The 1824 and 1828 elections resulted in victories for John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, who became the sixth and seventh presidents of the United States. According to Professor Robert Watson, these two elections were among the most important--and scandalous--in American history.
