Democrats and Republicans
The American party system was born in the policy conflicts between the followers of Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson during Washington’s presidency, but the Republican party is the younger of the two major parties. Although the definitions of Republican and Democrat have changed over the years, a two-party system has always flourished in the United States.
Come check out the two displays of the Democrats and Republicans at the Library! Become informed and remember to vote on November 6!
