The Henry Clay Failed Presidential Project


I am offering an extra credit opportunity. If you do the "Henry Clay" Presidential Project, I will replace this with your lowest Presidential Project. Here are the following things you must include in the Henry Clay's Failed Presidential Project:

-Who he ran against and LOST to in the 1824, 1828, 1832, 1840, and 1848 elections
-State he WOULD have been elected from
-The Political Party Clay WOULD have been on those election ballots
-The dates he was Speaker of the House of Representatives
-His birthday and the day he died
-The Mizzou Compromise, Compromise of 1850, and his "American System"
-States that entered the Union during his five time losing streak of running for the Presidency

These will be formatted exactly like the Presidential Projects. If you have questions about it, please let me know. This assignment is due on Monday, November 30. Be Good!
