His first wife had died due to lack of strength after giving birth, and it was his first wife's father that had wed the two. I guess you could say a mistake he made was asking his father-in-law to wed him to another woman, with ironically the same first name.

What was not a major source of ideas for the Constitution?

The Magna Carta and England's unwritten constitution is a major source. The works of John Locke and other Englightenment philosophers is another. The founder's experiences in the Revolution and with the Articles of Confederation were also important. In terms of specifics, the Federalist Papers that Adams, Madison, and Jay wrote were very important.

Did William Samuel Johnson sign the Constitution?

No he didn't. He was an anti-federalist, he was against the constitution convention, but he was still a founding father. Monroe's opposition to the U. S. Constitution centered around three major issues. He felt the lack of a Bill of Right was a major omission, the Senate was too powerful and that the document should allow for the direct election of the President (no electoral college). Monroe voted against ratification, but that didn't stop him from running for the body on three different occasions (2 wins, 1 loss). He was closely aligned with Thomas Jefferson and James Madison against the Federalist faction led by John Adams and Alexander Hamilton.

Election of 1828?

Andrew Jackson was elected president over the incumbent President John Quincy Adams in 1828, Jackson won the popular vote 642,553 (56.0 %) to 500,.897(43.6) and won the electoral vote by 178 to 83. Jackson carried 15 states to Adams's 9. The election of 1828 signaled a power shift in presidential politics. Jackson was the first US president from a state other than Mass. and VA and he was the first that was not a founding father or the son of a founding father. This was the first election in which the Western settlers played a major role in choosing the president. It also saw the beginnings of national political parties and showed how partisan newspapers can influence elections. The Democratic-Republicans Party evolved into the Democrats who supported Andrew Jackson, and the National Republicans supported John Quincy Adams. There is a link to an article on the election below.
