How's Hawaii? Also, if you're ever saddened at George Clinton's mis-fortunes, remember, there's another, much more entertaining NY Republican to observe. Wink

Oh? Wink.  It's great actually, not to hot, as I tend to go out late at night here, nice and cool.  Very clear skies.  Pearl Harbor was interesting, but go early and it only takes three hours.  As for the TL, I'm interested in your next installment.  And I say this in the least desperate way possible, but your TLs are what I read on vacation.  So please, get cracking!  Wink

January 1st, 1798:
Beginning the new year, a new tariff reduction proposal is introduced in the House of Representatives. Lowering the tariff rates from eight percent to six percent--only one percentage point above what they were before Hamilton's proposals in 1791--It is supported by both Republicans from all walks of life, and also by New England shippers who receive most of their revenue from trade with Europe. Supporters of industry, such as the now technically out of work Alexander Hamilton, find themselves almost completely alone in their opposition to it.

January 11th, 1798:
Dubbed the Trade and Commerce Act of 1798, it passes the House of Representatives by a comfortable margin. With the Senate still under control of the Republicans, it is likely to pass there as well.

January 15th, 1798:
The Trade and Commerce Act of 1798 is introduced in the Senate. With Senator George Cabot throwing approval of several New England Nationals behind it, it is likely to pass. However, the Senate is a much slower and deliberate body than the House.

February 1st, 1798:
The Senate passes the Trade and Commerce Act of 1798 by a large margin despite the protests of a small number of middle colony Nationals.

February 2nd, 1798:
Jefferson proudly signs the Trade and Commerce Act of 1798. While he would prefer one pushing tariffs down another two percent, to four percent, he understands that a push that far wouldn't have been as easy to pass as the one he has just signed his name to.

February 13th, 1798:
In a letter to New York Governor Stephen Van Rensselaer, former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton convinces the Governor to forgo re-election. Renssalear, himself a politician more out of a sense of duty than personal ambition, and having accomplished a number of the reforms he pushed for, is easily persuaded to return to the private life. Hamilton, who has been aching for a platform from which to oppose Jefferson on, now has no National Party rival to oppose him for Governor.

February 28th, 1798:
Meeting secretly with Creek and Cherokee leaders, Tennessee Senator William Blount, in collusion with the British, convinces the two Indian tribes to begin attacks on the Spanish territory of West Florida, promising fictional American aid and sanctions for it.

April 7th, 1798:
The Mississippi Territory is formally organized.

April 20th, 1798:
Cherokee raids in West Florida begin. However, Spanish settlements are not the only targets of the Cherokee as American settlers in the newly organized Mississippi Territory are drawn into the violence as well. Creek violence follows as well, sparking the outrage of farmers and settlers in Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and of course the Mississippi Territory.

April 24th, 1798:
Former United States Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, a National, is elected Governor of New York, beating his Republican opponent, Robert Livingston.


May 7th, 1798:
Edward Telfair, former Governor of Georgia, is confirmed as the Governor of the Mississippi Territory.

June 5th, 1798:
In one of his first days in Natchez, the capitol of the Mississippi Territory, Governor Edward Telfair is formally notified of the Indian violence that escalated months ago. As Governor, he vows to use the local militia to crush the seeming Indian insurrection.

June 19th, 1798:
Secretary of the Northwest Territory Winthrop Sargent, a National and Adams appointee, submits his resignation due to working under Jefferson. Jefferson is pleased and plans on appointing a Republican to the post.

June 25th, 1798:
To fill the vacancy left by Sarget, President Jefferson appoints the young William Clark to the position of Secretary of the Northwest. Clark is an experienced military man and surveyor, having helped scout out the site for the District of Columbia with John Adams and serving with distinction as a battlefield leader in the Northwest Indian Wars. Since then he has served in the Northwest militia and in various scouting and surveying expeditions. He was recommended to take the position by Presidential aide Meriwether Lewis, a friend of Clark. Defending his appointment, President Jefferson says "Some may call him young, but the world belongs to the young and they will inherit it when we are gone. It's best that they be prepared to take hold of this world when the time comes." Since the position of Secretary of the Northwest is only the second in command, and Clark will be led by the more experience Governor Arthur St. Clair, there is less controversy than there might have been.

July 1st, 1798:
Alexander Hamilton is sworn in as the third Governor of New York, succeeding George Clinton and Stephen Van Renssalear. This gives him significantly more power than he's held since March 4th, 1797 and he now has a greater platform from which to oppose Jefferson on. While he, as of the moment, has no ambitions for himself, he does have a love of pulling the strings for others.

July 3rd, 1798:
William Clark is confirmed as the second United States Secretary of the Northwest. He will be reporting to Fort Washington along the Wabash River to assume his duties.


July 4th, 1798:
In his annual address to the nation, President Jefferson promises continued progress in both down-sizing the army and in cutting federal power. The Act Concerning the United States Army and Trade and Commerce Act of 1798 have been great strides in the direction desired for him, the Republicans, and, he promises, the nation. Meanwhile, he continues, the more aggressive acts, including the creation of the Marine Corps and the Act of Protection of United States Commerce were "acts necessary to ensure the survival of freedom domestically and make the nation capable to protect itself from the tyrannies of European monarchies, which are anathema to the republican ideal."

July 14th, 1798:
Secretary William Clark arrives at Fort Washington in the Northwest Territory to begin his duties as Secretary of the aforementioned region.

July 16th, 1798:
The Marine Hospital Service Act, "an act for disabled seamen" is signed by President Jefferson.

August 3rd, 1798:
In a meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Francisco de Saavedra y Sangronis, Secretary of Foreign Affairs James Madison is harangued for what is translated as "American support for the Indian violence in West Florida". Deeply concerned, Madison promises that his country has had no hand in this and that America herself has been under Cherokee and Creek assault since the beginning of Spring. He promises that upon return to America, this will be investigated.

September 20th, 1798:
A special session of Congress is opened, where-in a Senate committee is opened up, given the title "The United States Committee for Investigation into Mississippi Indian Affairs". As a member of the committee, Tennessee Senator William Blount is in an awkward position.

October 10th, 1798:
A package of letters is suddenly procured and read aloud by an angry and embarrassed President Jefferson on the Senate floor. Jefferson's face is read with anger, frustration, and gall as he reads, out loud, letters between William Blount and various British diplomats and Navy admirals, conspiring to incite the Cherokee and Creek to war with Spain, which has now resulted as well in conflict in the United States. The Senate immediately votes to impeach Blount, who leaves the Senate immediately. The entire Republican party is ready to proceed with Senate hearings sending Blount to jail, or worse to the gallows, as a traitor, and a number of Nationals are willing to comply.


October 11th, 1798:
Now that the letters have revealed Great Britain to have a hand in manipulating affairs on the American continent, the Senate is deliberating what to do about it, with some fringe elements of the Republicans calling for a second war with England. Meanwhile, James Madison prepares to leave for Paris to meet not only with the French Directors, but also with the Spanish Prime Minister.

October 16th, 1798:
The Tennessee General Assembly elects former Senator and current Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Andrew Jackson to fill the vacancy left by William Blount.

October 25th, 1798:
Andrew Jackson, arriving in New York, is sworn in for another term in the U.S. Senate representing Tennessee.

November 21st, 1798:
Navy Secretary John Quincy Adams decline offers from Massachusetts Nationals begging him to run for Senate in February. "Our party was founded on the principles of standing up for our nation and supporting policies that benefit it, and I can not rightly live up to those standards should I abandon my position here when we are so close to war."

November 28th, 1798:
American Secretary of Foreign Affairs James Madison sits in Paris, France, with Spanish Prime Minister Francisco de Saavedra y Sangronis and three of the French Directors: Jean-François Rewbell,  Paul François Jean Nicolas, and  Louis Marie de La Révellière-Lépeaux. Three three Directors present are allies and of the more radical sort than the other two Directors. Opposing cessions to end their current war in Europe, these French Directors are glad to be presented with the opportunity to gain allies in Spain and America. In this meeting, the men form what will be called the "Triumvirate", a group of three nations allied against the British for different but similar reasons. As well, Madison immediately begins correspondence with Jefferson for advice, the President's view on things, and the American perspective.

December 18th, 1798:
A week before Christmas, with news buzzing between the two oceans and between multiple countries of the potential for an American alliance with France and Spain, British and Canadian troops cross the Northernmost boundary of the Northwest Territory and make their first few steps onto American soil.

December 25th, 1798:
Referred to as the "Battle of Christmas Day", American militamen meet British and Canadian regulars in an unexpected battle near what is today called Washington County in the South-Eastern part of Michigan.

January 1st, 1799:
The year begins with solemnity and bitterness as British troops are marching down through the North-West Territory and the nation seems to now be in an unofficial state of war. Meanwhile, in the Senate, a Declaration of War against Britain. In Paris, James Madison continue discussions with France and Spain over the formation of an alliance.

January 4th, 1799:
Upon ratification of a Declaration of War against Britain by the Senate, a number of New England Nationals find themselves storming out in protest. Among the few that remain are George Cabot of Massachusetts and Oliver Ellsworth of Connecticut. President Jefferson, for the record, signs it solemnly, launching the new nation into its first official state of war. Upon Jefferson's signing, Senator Andrew Jackson of Tennessee immediately resigns to join the fight in the North-West.

January 6th, 1799:
Both Houses of Congress near unanimously pass the Embargo Act, forbidding trade with Great Britain and its allies. As well, the Act of National Defense is introduced, permitting a buildup of the army. Its supporters profess that the militias will not be enough to stop British regulars.

January 7th, 1799:
Secretary of the Navy John Quincy Adams orders the small U.S. Navy into a state of preparedness.

January 25th, 1799:
In the Massachusetts State Senate, a move towards condemning America's State of War with Great Britain is narrowly struck down. By many the move was interpreted as a move towards secession and thus so opposed. This vote is only following hours of debate and speeches. Among the notable speakers against the move, there were former President John Adams, Senator George Cabot, and Vice President Samuel Adams. Among those arguing for condemnation were former Senator Caleb Strong and attorney John Lowell Jr.

February 5th, 1799:
Secretary of the Northwest William Clark meets the British in battle near Sargent County, a long ways North of Fort Washington. It is his first time meeting the British in battle and the smallness of the battle allows for an American victory. He later writes "In this war we have on advantage, and that is the British are fighting in a foreign country, thousands of miles from their own home."

February 12th, 1799:
In Connecticut, State Senator John Treadwell, a National, introduces a move similar to that in Massachusetts. The National run State Senate, filled mostly with representatives of New England shipping interests, has a good chance of passing the proposal.


February 21st, 1799:
Having received news from America of the Declaration of War, Secretary of Foreign Affairs James Madison is given the go-ahead to commence with any treaty with France and Spain that is acceptable to him.

March 1st, 1799:
The state of Connecticut officially condemns the nation's Declaration of War on Great Britain. Across the country, politicians will be condemning what is being attributed to as an act of treason. However, Connecticut hasn't stopped there.

March 4th, 1799:
The sixth Congress begins with a number of New England members missing, having resigned and their states having failed to produce successors. With this, the Republicans dominate the leadership nominations. The President Pro Tempore is Stephen R. Bradley of Vermont and the Speaker is Nathaniel Macon.

March 10th, 1799:
In a surprise attack, the British cross the border between New York and Canada, marking what is dubbed the Second Invasion.

March 11th, 1799:
Following the Sunday service, Governor Alexander Hamilton embarks North with the New York militia to fight the British.

March 13th, 1799:
The House finally passes the Act of National Defense in response to continued losses to the British in the Northwest Territory and the new British incursion into New York. The act, signed by President Jefferson, appropriates a large amount of money towards the arming, training, and running of a national army. As well, it creates the process for collecting recruits, allowing all able-bodied men to report to their town halls and county chairs to begin joining the national army.

March 15th, 1799:
Governor Alexander Hamilton, heading the New York state militia, meets the British in battle in upstate New York. Hamilton, a veteran of the revolution, seems in his element fighting the regulars. However, despite incurring a number of casualties, he is forced to retreat to the South.

March 21st 1799:
The Ternion Treaty is signed in Paris by Secretary of Foreign Affairs James Madison and representatives of France and Spain.

March 26th, 1799:
Following a request from New York and from the Federal Government for troops from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, and the rest of New England, Connecticut refuses to send members of its militia or any man that has signed up to be part of the national army. With this success, he plans on heading home to America.

April 3rd, 1797:
In Massachusetts, former Congressman Elbridge Gerry, a National, is elected Governor following a local backlash against those favoring the act of condemnation proposed by the more radical Nationals earlier in the year. He is seen as a moderate choice who is in support of the war but also a strong supporter of "Hamiltonian" economic policies.

April 8th, 1799:
With an influx of new troops from the Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts stae militias, Alexander Hamilton's New York troops see a changing of the tide in their fight against the British. However, Hamilton has been driven considerably South and if this good luck fails to be consistent, the British will be drawing close to to the more densely populated areas of the state. Troops from Connecticut are still being withheld by the state government.

April 18th, 1799:
In a small Connecticut town, a messenger from New York asking for the state militia is tarred and feathered. Such incidents have become common, reminiscent of the fate of tax collectors in Massachusetts during the prelude to the American Revolution.

May 3rd, 1799:
Secretary of Foreign Affaris James Madison arrives in New York City, delivering the Trenion Treaty to President Jefferson.

May 8th, 1799:
In a meeting with War Secretary Henry Dearborn, Navy Secretary John Quincy Adams who has been heavily involved in foreign affairs since his boyhood, Ambassador to France William Short, former Minister to Spain Thomas Pinckney, and of course James Madison, it is recommended by almost everyone in the meeting that Jefferson approve of the treaty.

May 14th, 1799:
The Trenion Treaty is introduced into the United States Senate. The treaty says, basically, that the three nations of America, France, and Spain agree to aid each other militarily and economically in their war against Great Britain.

May 31st, 1799:
At the Battle of Fort Washington, Secretary of the Northwest Territory William Clark, heading the National Army in its first time in battle, leads a successful battle against a large detachment of British troops.

June 2nd, 1799:
Elbridge Gerry is sworn into his first term as Governor of Massachusetts.


June 20th, 1799:
With lawmakers not having seen their homes in months, the Trenion Treaty at last passes the United States Senate.

June 24th, 1799:
Alexander Hamilton is forces to follow the strategy his mentor, George Washington, followed many years ago during the Revolution, to "win by losing" as he is forced to retreat further south. He sends messages to Albany and New York City to warn the state and national governments to prepare for another Battle of New York.

June 27th, 1799:
The Privateering Act of 1799 is signed into law by President Jefferson, granting bounty to volunteer private ship owners along the coast to aid in fighting the naval battle with the British. As well, it authorizes the purchasing of any and all available ships from Massachusetts shipyards. Some see this as not only a military necessity, but a political one as well as it may be a reward for Massachusetts' loyalty to the Union. That same day, President Jefferson receives news that they British may soon be closing in on downstate New York, specifically, towards New York City, the national capital and a center of culture, commerce, and people. Jefferson sees that the United States is in its greatest danger ever since the Revolution.

July 1st, 1799:
In one final request for troops from Connecticut, two officers of the National Army, appointed by Henry Dearborn himself, are beaten and hanged in the capital of Connecticut, Hartford. While this act isn't promoted by the government, it isn't condemned either.

July 4th, 1799:
Speaking to a tired Congress, held in emergency session in order to pass any and all wartime acts as seen necessary, President Jefferson promises that on this anniversary of the nation's liberty, America shall not waiver against the British despite their progress towards New York.

July 18th, 1799:
William Clark oversees a large American victory in the Battle of Mackinac where American troops have successfully laid siege to the British fort of Mackinac--technically on American land--over the past three weeks. With that, the British lose a large foothold and are forced to retreat North.

August 16th, 1799:
The city of Albany, the capitol of New York state, is set ablaze as the British march through in pursuit of the ever retreating New York militia. That night, Hamilton writes, requesting more troops and that the Federal Government evacuate from New York City.


August 17th, 1799:
Passing through Kinderhook that morning, Alexander Hamilton asks all able bodied men to come to arms to join the militia and help the army. He warns that the British will be passing through the town as well in what may be a matter of days or hours and that this is an important moment for the town and for America. Among those that volunteer to help to, in vain, protect their town is a young lawyer's apprentice named Martin Van Buren.

August 18th, 1799:
Being shoved awake in the early morning hours to hear news from the front-lines that the British have burned Albany and are making their way towards the capitol. Meanwhile, in Kinderhook, a sixteen year-old Martin Van Buren is wounded in the attempt to stop the oncoming British. However he will stick with the militia even as he is forced to flee from his small town as the Britisih continue marching South. He thanks God that the city has not been burnt on in other ways defiled and the British merely intend to pass through and continue South.

August 19th, 1799:
The Senate and the House of Representatives are ordered out of New York City as well as any of the members of the Supreme Court left around. Citizens as well are encourage to leave but a large number choose to stay behind with their President who has chosen to ride our the oncoming storm. "It is lucky the British are embroiled in Europe, or we would find every American port including this one substantially blockaded." he tells John Quincy Adams. Adams agrees. It's lucky that the war with Britain come at a time that America's allies of Spain and France are busy fighting the British in Europe. America is a small concern for Britain compared to the other two.

September 26th, 1799:
Hamilton's men arrive on the shores of New York, across the way from Manhattan Island. With all remaining New England recruits pouring in from the East, Hamilton awaits news from Andrew Jackson who has been embroiled in the Northwest Territory.

September 30th, 1799:
With their backs to the water, the New York State Militia and the National Army meet the British once again in battle. The battle itself will take weeks as the amount of forces committed by each side and the amount of retreating along the coast Hamilton does draw out America's otherwise weak forces.

October 2nd, 1799:
The British are hit from the side by Andrew Jackson's forces. The battle is far from over, but it is now an equal fight. With the Northwest Territory near completely cleared and William Clark to oversee it, Jackson has taken the vast mass of the National Army located there and brought them to New York.


October 20th, 1799:
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court James Iredell passes away in Edenton, North Carolina at age 48, leaving a vacancy for President Jefferson to fill. However, he is in no position to fill it, nor even aware of Iredell's death as he find himself embroiled in the Battle of New York.

November 1st, 1799:
In a surprise, State Senator John Treadwell is elected Governor as a National following winning the nomination of his party over the incumbent and popular John Trumbull who didn't take kindly to the talk of near secession.

November 5th, 1799:
The Siege of New York is broken as a final surge of American forces up the coastline kills a large number of British regulars and the remainders flee or surrender. The battle has lasted over a month and is the singe bloodiest battle of both this war and the Revolution. The battle has made heroes of both Hamilton and Jackson who themselves were already nationally known. As well, a number of younger veterans emerge from the battle including the young Martin Van Buren who now plans on returning to Kinderhook to help the town and continue his apprenticeship as a lawyer if possible.

December 1st, 1799:
With the re-establishing of the Federal Government in New York City, Jefferson proposes to fill the seat left vacant by James Iredell with his own Attorney General, George Clinton. Clinton is a man of high standing and has served as Governor of New York in the past. However, he is also controversial and to some, such as the Nationals in New York, he is seen as one of their worst enemies. However, with Jefferson's popularity following victory over the British in that very city only a month prior and the Senate being controlled by Republicans, they will find itself easily confirming Clinton.

December 6th, 1799:
Following little debate, George Clinton is confirmed as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. He resigns his position as Attorney General to take the seat.


December 13th, 1789:
Postmaster General James Monroe is appointed to become the next United States Attorney General. With little interest in law, Monroe is nonetheless a loyal protege of Jefferson.

December 19th, 1799:
James Monroe is confirmed as the fourth United States Attorney General. However, he has agreed to keep his position as Postmaster General as well until the next session of Congress. Following the emergency session which lasted throughout the year, Congress is heading home for the next few months.


December 25th, 1799:
A happy Christmas is celebrated throughout the nation as the Hell the nation seemingly descended to is now fleeing back towards the Canadian border. Jefferson now plots, with his cabinet and with the members of the military, the next step, that being incursion into Canada. "After the last year, taking Canada should be a mere matter of marching." declares the President. Northwest Secretary William Clark--another hero of the war thus far--finds himself leading the forces in the West. Andrew Jackson shall be there as well. Meanwhile, the second group of forces shall be heading up from New York and New England. Former New York Governor Stephen Van Renssalear who himself served in the Battle of New York is in charge of that force. Hamilton instead shall be left at home in order to oversee the reconstruction of Albany and the affairs of the state he was elected to govern. Navy Secretary John Quincy Adams plots the blockade of the coast through use of the Buckaneers, the small American fleet, the purchased ships, and the "mosquito boats" Jefferson has grown so fond of.

I think the attack on NYC should make the Feds think more about the defense of the soon to be capital in Maryland.

How so? (I'm a bit confused) The Brits have been driven North following victory at the Battle of New York. But yes, the building of the capitol is a key issue and it will be an important factor that the capitol be easily defended and well supplied. However, that will be an issue primarily for a time when America is at peace and has the funds and troops to secure itself.

May he butt heads with Marshall for many a decade!

George Clinton is the first and so far the only justice of Republican persuasion on the court. As well he is the first and only appointed by President Jefferson thus far. (Also of note is the fact that he is the first member not to have served on the court in real life)

Awesomeness, now for the big elephant in the room:

January 1st, 1800:
A new decade and a new year begin today. With American troops preparing to take the war into Canada and the United States recovering from a year of warfare in their own country, it is a year of hope for the young country.

January 25th, 1800:
The "Aroostook War" on the American-Canadian border in Northern Massachusetts begins as lumberjacks from both sides erupt into guerilla and militia fighting in the dead of winter. With that in mind, to President Jefferson, the time has come to strike.

February 13th, 1800:
In biting cold, American forces surprise attack a British detachment on the border between the Northwest Territory and Canada, beginning the American Invasion of Canada.

February 17th, 1800:
The Connecticut State Senate, under the command of the radical Governor John Treadwell, votes to condemn the recent actions of the United States military. But more importantly, a motion is also proposed, pledging resources to the British cause. As news of this escapes throughout the country, a political firestorm is brewing.

February 25th, 1800:
United States Attorney General James Monroe files to bring the State of Connecticut before a court to declare its recent actions unconstitutional. While such a move is expected, it is also seen as pre-emptive as Connecticut has yet to pass its most recently proposed motion.

March 15th, 1800:
Britain is reminded to "beware the Ides of March" as America's navy begins a blockade of Western Canada, specifically Nova Scotia. With tiny "mosquito boats" bombarding Nova Scotia's coast and assisted by cannon fire from an American frigate, Navy Secretary John Quincy Adams (looking on from a safely located boat) is proud. However, he knows that the British, in full force, still rule the seas and that success is relying on the distraction of war in Europe.

April 3rd, 1800:
Andrew Jackson's forces are attacked and nearly over-powered by a group of Canadian and American Indians on the journey into Canada, taking the largest death toll of the war in a single battle in what will be called the Battle of Northern Huron.

April 11th, 1800:
The Battle of Lake Erie, taking place on the aforementioned lakes' shores between British and America soldiers, kicks off the beginning of the second point of American invasion.

April 13th, 1800:
On the day of the President's 57th birthday, he receives bad news as he discovers that American troops in Canada have been slaughtered by vengeful Indian tribes, most notably the Ottawa and the Lenape, which fled there in 1793 following the massacring of their leaders and troops in the Northwest Indian Wars.

April 14th, 1800:
The Battle of Lake Erie ends with American victory, a morale boost to the troops who are under the command of General Stephen Van Renssalear. Sending a page back to New York to deliver the news of American victory, the general and his troops press on.

April 15th, 1800:
Having not received taxes at all from Connecticut since early 1799, federal troops, headed by Henry Dearborn himself, march into Connecticut. In the so-called "Battle of Stamford", Dearborn defeats the Connecticut state militia sent out to stop him. Despite President Jefferson's doctrine of "State's Rights", he is also a pragmatist, and knows no country in which its own states refuse to support it can survive.

May 3rd, 1800:
The National Party nominates former Secretary of Foreign Affairs John Jay of New York and Senator George Cabot of Massachusetts for President. Following the debacle in Connecticut and a number of secessionist movements in New England, these two are left as two of the few currently respected members of the party willing to run. Alexander Hamilton for his part is all too willing to stay out of the election and continue his term as Governor of New York.

May 11th, 1800:
With Vice President Samuel Adams refusing a second run, the Republican Caucus in Philadelphia instead nominates President Thomas Jefferson of Virginia and Senator Aaron Burr of New York.

May 12th, 1800:
In the "Battle of Hartford", Governor John Treadwell is arrested as well as a number of members of the Connecticut State Senate. One of the biggest scandals in the nation's history, the near secession of a state, has been averted, but reconciling the state with its country will be less than easy.

May 14th, 1800:
With Congress re-convening, President Jefferson reveals his appointment to succeed Postmaster General James Monroe. It is John Breckenridge, the former Attorney General of Kentucky. An attorney and Revolutionary War veteran, Breckenridge served as a Congressman from Virginia (1793-1794) before resigning and moving to Kentucky, becoming its Attorney General (1795-1797). During his time in the House, Breckenridge was one of the original Republicans and had a loyal voting record while in there.


May 19th, 1800:
After a short period of debate, John Breckenridge is confirmed as the 4th United States Postmaster General.

May 27th, 1800:
An amphibious American force captures Fort George on the northern end of the Niagara River without serious losses.

June 2nd, 1800:
In order to smooth over the reconstruction of Connecticut and its government, President Jefferson appoints Congressman Gideon Granger to become interim Governor for Connecticut. Granger is a committed Republican and loyal party member. As members of a party founded on states' rights and democracy, this puts both Jefferson and Granger in an odd position. However, Granger vows to try to make it all work out.

July 4th, 1800:
President Jefferson's address to Congress is an optimistic one, focusing on the American successes in the invasion of Canada. No mention is made of many of the serious losses that were incurred around Lake Michigan.

July 9th, 1800:
Governor Granger unveils before Congress the 25% Plan. Under it, 25% of the Connecticut population will have to submit to a loyalty oath for the state to receive its full rights as citizens. While a majority of members of both parties support it--one Nationalist representative whispers that it seems like something his party would cook up--a faction emerges called the "Radical Republicans" organizes in opposition to it. Led by John Randolph Roanoke, they propose the 50% Plan, where 50% of all Connecticut residents must pledge their loyalty. "These Radicals are not Republicans at all!" cries Jefferson from his office, and he is right. The most radical of them go the most against the original principles of the party.

August 3rd, 1800:
Having fought itself far into Canada, Van Renssalear's forces now converge on Montreal. Despite heavy casualties, re-enforcements have joined them along the way and now, the Seige of Montreal begins.

August 25th, 1800:
After over three weeks of waiting, the Seige of Montreal comes to a close as British troops, starving, exit the valuable fort. One of the greatest moments of the war has ended with American victory.

September 10th, 1800:
The 25% Plan is finally passed by both the House and the Seante, despite the objections of the Radical Republicans. In it, an addition is made where-in at 10% loyalty, elections for Congress and the Governorship will be held, but only at 25% will reconstruction end and the right to participate in elections begin.

September 22nd, 1800:
With Andrew Jackson fighting in the North around the Georgian Bay, Secretary Will Clark meets British troops outside York, the capitol of Canada. With troops on both sides having dwindled and Americans having ravaged fields of crops or taken them for their own, the Americans have the advantage as they can be re-supplied from across Lake Ontario and from now American controlled Fort George.

September 25th, 1800:
In the most casualty filled battle of the war, surpassing the Battle of North Huron, the Battle of York ends with American victory, but at a heavy price. William Clark is left to attempt to control the city with only a few hundred men at his disposal and little hope for re-enforcement. Nevertheless, news of the two British defeats--at Montreal and now at York--will make its way back to London.

November 13th, 1800:
In the Election of 1800, all the states where popular vote affects the votes of the electors have now closed their polls.

December 3rd, 1800:
All states have now determined their electoral votes. However, the only clue anybody has as to the winner are through rumors. All these rumors, however, point to a massive land-slide re-election for Jefferson, the likes of which President Adams never experienced. The official results, however, will not be known until they are read in the Senate in February.

February 11th, 1801:
With the electoral votes for all the states being read aloud in the Senate under the watchful eye of outgoing Vice President Samuel Adams, it is soon made clear that something unprecedented has taken place in American politics: The first two finishers, President Jefferson and Senator Burr, have tied, meaning that a vote in the House of Representatives is required to determine who will be inaugurated on March 4th. Connecticut, due to still being under "Reconstruction" is prevented from voting.


President Thomas Jefferson [Republican-Virginia] 105 electoral votes
Senator Aaron Burr [Republican-New York] 105 electoral votes
Former Secretary of Foreign Affairs John Jay [National-New York] 32 electoral votes
Senator George Cabot [National-Massachusetts] 32 electoral votes

February 13th, 1801:
President Thomas Jefferson of Virginia is re-elected following two days of speculation. The majority of his opposition comes from embittered Nationals un-willing to let their most popular opponent maintain his control on the White House. Nevertheless, with the support of the majority of representatives, Jefferson is given a second term. His victory in Connecticut is due to the Reconstruction elections giving moderate Nationals--unaffiliated with the secession movement--the seats.


President Thomas Jefferson [Republican-Virginia]: 11 states
Senator Aaron Burr [Republican-New York]: 5 states

March 4th, 1801:
President Thomas Jefferson is sworn in for a second term. This is the first inauguration to take place in the District of Columbia, the new national capitol on the Potomac. Aaron Burr is sworn in as the nation's fourth Vice President.
