America was built on the foundation of politics and political movements. At the outset two distinct parties arose, the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans. The Democratic-Republicans would drop the Republican portion of their name, becoming the Democratic Party. The Whig Party would emerge in part from the Federalist Party. By the mid-1800s the Whig Party would die out and from its ashes would come the Republican Party. Join us as we trace the history of the Republican Party from its inception to the present.
