. THE 1812 CAMPAIGN AND ELECTION
... .
from President Elect contributor Stuart Schimler:
The presidential election occurred only 5 months after the war of 1812 began. Madison had his critics, and many Republicans jumped ship to the Federalist Party in the Northeastern seaboard. Madison got heavy support from the South and West; this is because of the War Hawks: young congressmen like Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun, Felix Grundy, Richard Johnson and Langdon Cheves. These men pushed for the war, and naturally supported Madison. Madison took the election, but only Vermont- the only state that wasnít on the coast in the North East.
