James Monroe, The Era of Good Feeling
This video is accompanied by text. "As James Madison approached the end of his presidency in 1816, a fellow Virginian and Republican—James Monroe—was elected as his successor.

Warren Harding's era
The 1920s were dominated by the administrations of three Republican presidents: Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. Elected in 1920 on a "return to normalcy" platform, Warren G. Harding was a hearty, kind, easy-going man—too kind and easy-going to be a good president. He found it difficult to refuse any requests his friends made of him. In addition, Harding was less gifted intellectually than a president ought to be. He admitted this weakness when he said, "I am a man of limited talents from a smal
