Brotherly Love 1796 Presidential Elections
The United States Presidential Election of 1796 was the 3rd quadrennial presidential election. It was held from Friday, November 4 to Wednesday, December 7, 1796. It was the first contested American presidential election and the only one in which a president and vice president were elected from opposing tickets. The ratification of the Twelfth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1804 made such a result unlikely in the future.
