About this video

Following the Revolutionary War, the United States represented a modern republic. In this video, Ralph Anske defines the term republic and describes the political, social, and economic conditions in the newly formed country during the late 1700s. Anske focuses this discussion on the country’s fourth president James Madison, the War of 1812, the Napoleonic Wars, and the impact of the Missouri Compromise. He also describes the rise and fall of the country’s first political parties and how changing moral views on slavery would eventually lead to civil war.
