Example text

S. diplomat in Great Britain. He and Louisa were married on July 26, 1797. President John Adams recalled his son from Berlin after he lost the bitterly contested election of 1800. The younger Adams returned to Boston to pursue his legal career. Public life continued to exert a pull on him, and in 1803 he was elected to represent Massachusetts in the United States Senate. Although a member of the Federalist Party, Adams was independent-minded. To the dismay of the Massachusetts Federalist Party, Adams supported two crucial Jeffersonian diplomatic initiatives: the Louisiana Purchase and the Embargo of 1807.

During the years of the early republic, southerners soon abandoned any serious discussion of the contradiction between slavery and freedom. Politically and constitutionally, slaveholders received significant new protections to human property during the 1780s and 1790s. While the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 prohibited slavery’s expansion into the territories north of the Ohio River, another proposed ordinance from 1784 had already failed to limit bondage in the Southwest. This earlier measure would prove significant during Thomas Jefferson’s presidency, when the Louisiana Purchase (1803) opened the sugar plantations of Louisiana and other valuable land to migrating slaveholders.

Tobacco, for example, became nearly worthless since it was almost impossible to send it to distant markets. Although slaves and hired labor worked on some farms, most farmers relied on family labor. As northern states emancipated their slaves, the region—including the area north of the Ohio River—became even more devoted to free labor.
