James Monroe Interveiw by: whitney punnoose

"What was the point of your life?"

The point of my life is to fight under George Washington and studied law with Thomas Jefferson.

"How do you think you will actually be rembered?"

I would like to be remembered by my election which was almost unanimous. So many people wanted me to be president that everyone except for a couple people wanted me for president.

"What do you consider your greatest success?"

I think my greatest success was purchasing Florida from Spain, extending the country's territory into the Pacific Northwest, helping control sectional tensions and asserted the primacy of the United States in the Western Hemisphere.

"Would or could you have done things differently, if so how?"

If I could have done changed anything it would be ordering Andrew Jackson to fight the Seminoles and occupy Florida without Congressional approval, I would have not let him do that.

"Do you have any regrets?"

I do not have any regrets because I believe that I have done my best and I wouldn't try to change anything.

"What party do you belong to?"

I am democratic-republican because I believed in an agrarian-based, decentralized, democratic government and I oppose the Federalists who had supported and pushed through the ratification of the US Constitution.

"What is one thing you accomplished during your presidency?"

One great thing I believe I have done during my presidency is create the cabinet.

Thanks for taking the time to view my presentation:)
