Era of Good Feelings

The "Era of Good Feeling", a phrase first used in the Boston Columbian Centinel newspaper on July 12, 1817 following the good-will visit to Boston of the new President James Monroe, is generally applied to describe the national mood of the United States from about 1815 to 1825.

The period after the conclusion of the War of 1812 was marked by a lower level of concern over potential foreign intervention on the American continent, and a relative consensus over domestic policy illustrated in the lack of partisan factions.

End of the Era of Good Feelings

After the Panic of 1819 and the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the national mood grew more tense. However, the relentless daily bitter attacks by one party against the other did not resume until about 1828. Before 1820, the Democratic-Republican Party members of Congress had met in caucus and decided on the party's presidential candidate. That system collapsed in 1824 as five men competed: John Quincy Adams, John C. Calhoun, William H. Crawford, Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson.
