Colonial Williamsburg’s Gift to the Nation in this election year provides teachers with unique resources to engage students in the study of citizenship and our founding democratic principles. The Electronic Field Trip “The Will of the People” examines the presidential election of 1800, one of the most bitter in U.S. history. Thomas Jefferson explains how negative campaigning and partisan politics have been a part of our political system since the earliest days of the republic.
