The vote that made Jefferson President: February 17th, 1801. The House is deadlocked on a vote to decide the 3rd President of the United States because of the vagueness of the Constitution and the role of the electoral college. The Federalists, led by Alexander Hamilton, refuse to vote in favor of Thomas Jefferson who received a majority of the vote. Instead they will vote for Federalist Aaron Burr. Representative James Bayard confers with Jefferson and ultimately casts the historical deciding vote.
The Louisiana Purchase: Apritl 12th, 1803. The port of New Orleans has been closed to planters, denying them the ability to sell their produce.
