The Democratic Party is one of the two major political parties in the Confederate States, along with the New
Federalist Party. Tracing its heritage back to Thomas Jefferson and James Madison's Democratic-Republican Party, the modern-day Democratic Party was founded around 1828 by Andrew Jackson, making it the oldest active party in the CSA.
The Democratic Party traces its origins to the inspiration of the Democratic-Republican Party, founded by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and other influential opponents of the Federalists in 1792. That party also inspired the Whigs and modern Republicans. Organizationally, the modern Democratic Party truly arose in the 1830s, with the election of Andrew Jackson.
The Democratic Party became the dominate Party in the CSA in the years following the Civil war and held the presidency until 1885, when New Federalist candidate Pierre G.T. Beauregard won the election.
