Which of the following effectively marked the end of the Federalist Party?
  1. The ratification of the Constitution
  2. The election of Thomas Jefferson
  3. The death of Alexander Hamilton
  4. Andrew Jackson's victory in the Battle of New Orleans
  5. The Embargo Act
Answer: D - The Federalist Party essentially disappeared when Andrew Jackson defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. The Federalists had been weakened after James Madison's election and were highly critical of his handling the War of 1812. However, Andrew Jackson's victory created a flood of national pride and made the Federalists appear distinctly unpatriotic, hastening their disappearance from the political scene.
