What did this new American government look like? Who could participate in this new American democracy? And what was it like to participate in this new democracy?
In this episode of the Ben Franklin’s World podcast, scholars Terrance Rucker, a Historical Publications Specialist in the Office of the Historian of the U.S. House of Representatives and Marcela Miccuci, a curator at the Museum of the American Revolution, join us to investigate the first federal elections in the United States and who could vote in early U.S. elections.
