From 1803 to 1805, President Hamilton and his Federalist cabinet endured a turbulent political atmosphere that threatened the unity of the Federalist Party. Primarily, the question of Ohio's admission into the Union caused political rifts in Congress and severely damaged the popularity of the government. Former allies of President Hamilton abandoned their leader and supported the inclusive policy of the Democratic-Republicans, which demanded Ohio's immediate admittance into the Union as a state. The contest was finally settled in 1805, when Democrats and Federalists settled the issue with a legislative compromise.
