The Democratic Republican Party in the first Monroe Administration

The Democratic Republican Party made sweeping gains during Monroe's first administration. In the elections of 1816-1817, the DRP gained 30 former Federalist seats in the U.S. House, and in the midterm elections of 1818-1819 they took an additional 12. When the 16th Congress assembled on 12/6/1819, the party breakdown in the House was DR-154, F-29, I-2. During these four years, the Federalist presence in the U.S. Senate was cut from 14 to seven.
