not long after the Constitution was created One of the first parties to develop was the Federalist Party lead by Alexander Hamilton and John Adams At about the same time a party which was then called the Republican Party lead mainly by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison was founded Later on a group who believed that the federal government should strongly promote economic development was established and became known as the National Republicans The opponents of this party following Andrew Jackson also united themselves and were named the Democratic-Republicans And later on around 1828 they came to be known as the Democratic Party Later on during Jacksons presidency his opponents started calling themselves the Whig Party However everything changed in 1854 due to the Kansas-Nebraska Act an act which made slavery possible in western territories After this act was passed the Democratic Party split into separate North and South divisions And a new Republican Party formed in place of the Whig Party The Kansas-Nebraska act was a proposal by Sen Stephen A Douglas which said that Kansas and Nebraska territory could be allowed to govern itself whether or not to be a slave state or a free state By a vote of its residents the territories would become a slave or a free state This caused many fights between Northerners and Southerners As a result many people were killed This act was fair because it gave the majority of the population the choice This would be better because if the government just said that the land was a free state the people who had slaves would have to move out of their state and travel to a slave state so they could keep their slaves and not have to sell them It would be good because it gives the people the choice of it being a slave or free state and they could debate the situation
