Fifth President: James Monroe - 0 comments



James Monroe, president from 1817-1825, fought against partisanship within the government. He ushered in what came to be known as the "Era of Good Feelings." His most lasting contribution was the "Monroe Doctrine," which took a stand against European influence in the Americas.

The original portrait I drew from was completed in 1816, by John Vanderlyn.
