Voting for Jay

Rhonda Rodentilly, Document Historian

This is the kind of stuff I love.  It’s why I’m a member of the Superhero Historians.  Check it out.  When President Washington wanted to appoint John Jay to negotiate the treaty with Great Britain, there was opposition.  The Federalists were aligned more with Great Britain.  The Democratic - Republicans were more on the side of France.  Aaron Burr, remember him, was a Democratic - Republican.  He moved to vote that sending Jay was unnecessary and that he would have to resign from the Supreme Court first.  Here is the actual vote!  Burr’s motion failed.  Count it up for yourself.
