So begins Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward Larson's masterful account of the wild ride that was the 1800 presidential election-an election so convulsive and so momentous to the future of American democracy that Thomas Jefferson would later dub it "America's second revolution." This was America's first true presidential campaign, giving birth to our two-party system and indelibly etching the lines of partisanship that have so profoundly shaped American politics ever since. The contest featured two of our most beloved Founding Fathers, once warm friends, facing off as the heads of their two still-forming parties-the hot-tempered but sharp-minded John Adams, and the eloquent yet enigmatic Thomas Jefferson-flanked by the brilliant tacticians Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, who later settled their own differences in a duel.
