A COMPANION TO 19th-CENTURY AMERICA

توضیحات

THOMAS Jefferson choreographed his 1801 inauguration as a simple, chaste, and purely republican affair. Unlike his predecessors, whose liveried coaches had whisked them to the ceremony, this ``friend of the people'' walked behind a small band of local militia. George Washington and John Adams had worn swords, but he donned a plain suit. Inside the Senate chamber, Jefferson delivered a speech in hushed tones that many of the few hundred listeners described as inaudible. Afterwards, according to one report, he returned to his boarding-house and, as was his habit, seated himself for dinner at the low end of the table. Twenty-eight years later the scene was different. Like Jefferson, Andrew Jackson was a popular figure who walked to the Capitol, dressed simply, and whispered his inaugural address. But Jackson took the presidential oath outside, where, at the ceremony's conclusion, the jubilant crowd of 20,000 well-wishers rushed forward, forcing the former military leader to retreat on horseback. The mob pursued him to the White House, where it crashed through doors, soiled carpets, damaged furniture, and shattered china. Only after barrels of punch had been placed on the lawns did people ± some of whom had been injured in the fracas ± begin to recede from the mansion. More than a few observers sniffed that democracy had gone awry, that America's experiment with participatory government had lowered high politics to lamentable depths.
