Focusing on the careers of Isaac Hill and Levi Woodbury, this book presents a new interpretation of Jacksonian Democracy and explains the influence of New Hampshire on that movement. Donald Cole challenges the popular “consensus” thesis that Democrats hardly differed from Whigs, and stresses the continuity of party development from Jefferson to Jackson. Demonstrating the importance of issues in party politics, he emphasizes the appeal of Jacksonian Democracy to the common man. In his study of the presidential election of 1832 in New Hampshire the author uses quantitative methods to show that Democrats represented a different economic group than did National Republicans.
