  • The National Republicans were a political party in the United States. During the administration of John Quincy Adams, the president's supporters were referred to as Adams Men or Anti-Jackson. When Andrew Jackson was elected President of the United States in 1828, this group went into opposition. The use of the term "National Republican" dates from 1830. Before the elevation of John Quincy Adams to the presidency in 1825, the Democratic-Republican Party, which had been the only national American political party for over a decade, began to fracture, losing its infrastructure and identity. Its caucuses no longer met to select candidates because now they had separate interests. After the 1824 election, factions developed in support of Adams and in support of Andrew Jackson. Adams politicians, including most ex-Federalists, would gradually evolve into the National Republican party, and those politicians that supported Jackson would later help form the modern Democratic Party. The ad hoc coalition that supported John Quincy Adams fell apart after his defeat for reelection in 1828.
