3 The Demise of the Federalist Party
The Federalist Party was split and weakened during the War of 1812. James Monroe easily defeated the Federalist Party in the election of 1816. The election showed how much the party had declined. Federalists had joined the Republican party and voted for Monroe. Monroe was so well liked in the country that when he ran for second term no one opposed and this meant the federalist party had disappeared.
