Presidential Inaugurations

What did Marbury v Madison have to do with the Democratic-Republicans?

Marbury v. Madison was emblematic of the political battle between the Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party (formerly called the Anti-Federalists) for control of the Judicial branch of government.

John Marshall defused the political tension by giving the new Jefferson administration a narrow ruling on Marbury that satisfied the Democratic-Republicans, but simultaneously enhanced the power of the judiciary by clearly explicating the Court's right of judicial review, by declaring Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 unconstitutional (a legal maneuver).

President Jefferson was not pleased with that aspect of the ruling and predicted the Supreme Court would become an "oligarchy," but had no grounds to challenge Marshall because the decision was in his party's, and his administration's, favor.

Case Citation:

Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803)

Which amendment moved inauguration day from march fourth to January twentieth?

20th Amendment ratified 1/23/1933 Realizing that the severity of the Great Depression required prompt action, there was widespread agreement that inauguration and installation of newly elected Congressmen and Presidents should be moved forward from the traditional March 4th date. When first enacted, it was a time when people travelled by horseback or horse-drawn conveyance. The age of the automobile, improved train travel, and even the nascent airlines made such a delay unnecessary.

Rutherford B. Hayes

Accomplishments while in office for Rutherford B. Hayes?

During the Hayes Administration from 1877 - 1881, the major events included:

The end of Reconstruction ~ One of Hayes's first acts as President was to withdraw federal occupation from the South, as he had promised that he would do. On April 10, 1877, the soldiers left South Carolina, and on April 24, the last federal troops marched from Louisiana. Hayes hoped that the end of Reconstruction would restore the two-party system in the South. But, the Democrats won back their solid hold on the South.

Civil service reform ~ Hayes had fought Congress in the fight to reform the system, but, they refused to help him. However, the public supported the President, and it opened the way for later Presidents to make civil service reforms.
