United States National Republican Party

The National Republican Party was a United States political party that existed in the first half of the 19th century.

During John Quincy Adams's presidency the United States Democratic-Republican Party began to split, those who supported Adams became known as the National Republicans, while others supported Andrew Jackson and formed the modern day Democratic Party. The National Repulicans ran Henry Clay against Andrew Jackson in the election of 1832, and Clay's loss convinced Jackson that the people had give him a mandate to abolish the National Bank.

After the election of 1832, the National Republican party eventually fell apart. Many of its members joined the United States Whig Party.
